Slated to be finished at the end of this year, this rigorously symmetrical new house takes on Georgian proportions, façades of shadows, and fuses a thoroughly modern interior that quietly peeks through the pared down classical organization of the exterior façades. The white on white palette emphasizes the tones and shadows produced throughout the day- at the interior and exterior.
To make a palatial 380 SF apartment in New York City, we started with a single theme, crafted of oak and glowing light, and a precise use of every square inch. We imagined an oasis, a private hotel-esque suite. Serenity and modernity rise far above the streets of the city.
Working internationally, we carefully added to and reshaped the massing of this English Arts and Crafts house and reawakened the interior layout. While the project required a complete gut renovation, we strove to modernize, yet maintain the character of the house located at the edge of New Forest National Park in Southern England.
Designed for the 25th (silver) anniversary of Holly Hunt's acclaimed furniture and textile showrooms.
By twisting two stable tripod forms on itself, the structure presents a symmetrical, balanced form in plan, but viewed from other directions, the form takes on an almost off balance, dynamism.
