The objective of this award-winning Westchester renovation was to create a spatially dynamic, light-filled, and energy-efficient home with a strong connection to the Long Island Sound. Our client, recognizing the potential of the beautiful waterfront property, sought to transform the home into one with bright, open spaces better suited to her family’s contemporary lifestyle.
The design challenge involved rethinking the existing faÃ§ade, improving the convoluted interior layout, and enriching each space with finely crafted materials. We were required to reuse the existing footprint, while raising the top of foundation walls to exceed new flood regulations. Innovative materials were used to produce an energy efficient thermal envelope and contemporary yet contextually appropriate facades.
With the goal of integrating the architectural and interior design, we selected furnishings that fulfilled the client’s functional needs while complementing the layout and scale of each space. While the overall palette of the interiors is understated and serene, each space has a uniquely curated composition of finishes, textures, and accent colors.
This residence received a Design Award Citation from the AIA of Westchester+Hudson Valley.
