Bug Acres of Woodstock
This newly constructed home in Upstate New York was designed to replace an existing weekend retreat within the same site. The goal for the new house was to blend with the surrounding landscape while amplifying the Owner’s visual and auditory experience of the landscape from interior spaces. The “horizontal” window in the living room focuses ones view down through the lawn and towards the natural wetlands. The “vertical” window draws one’s eye to a rock outcropping across a stream. The all cedar screened porch opens towards the same rock outcropping and is cantilevered over the steam, truly well suited for daydreaming.
