Artist’s Retreat
Upstate New York

This complex is comprised of a cluster of cubes, divided by function, connected by transparent walkways, and situated to maximize privacy and views to the landscape. As part of the design team, I participated in materiality studies for the cladding, eventually determining that simple hemlock clapboards would be most appropriate and allow the cubes to blend with their surroundings. I also developed door and window details that reinforced the volumetric expression of the cubes by maintaining the exterior planer surfaces, and minimizing the visible components.
