A glass Hudson Valley home that was inspired by the renowned mid-century experimental “Case Study Homes”, specifically the Stahl House in Los Angeles, was recently featured in a New York Times slideshow.
The architect-owners had two priorities for the project: 1) use of original materials and 2) creating an outdoor-indoor connection. The glass home is largely constructed from Anderson sliders and glued, laminated timbers. The interior materials, such as the heart pine on the ceiling and central stone fireplace, are a mix of natural wood, metal, stone and concrete and were selected to echo the forested surroundings.
The kitchen, designed by Aston Smith of Bilotta Kitchens, features natural walnut quarter-sawn cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops in “Concrete” and a Carrera marble backsplash. The custom lighting was built from readily available components. It creates a diamond pattern across the ceiling and illuminates the beautiful pine ceiling.
