Immersed in deep woods in upstate New York, this single-room Writer’s Studio is a striking modern boxy building clad with matte black cedar.
The volume is a rectilinear, but the inside is uncluttered and elegant with rigid orthogonal geometry is juxtaposed with the dynamic sculptural designs of the furniture.
Given harsh winters, the fireplace becomes the visual center, anchoring the asymmetrical composition with a large, richly conceived hearth. The fireplace also anchors the large cantilevered corners to either side from a structural point of view.
Inspiration from architect:
This small studio is a place for one person to work, read, and listen to music. Open vistas to a pond and fields are to one side; the other side is immersed in deep woods. Each façade is composed with distinct apertures specifically arranged to the light and views, all tailored like a bespoke suit to the client’s size and eye level.
