Private Residence, Hudson, NY

The house and carriage house are situated on a compact parcel, 25 feet wide by 100 feet deep. Spacesmith envisioned an urban compound, a series of intimate indoor and outdoor spaces for retreat and rejuvenation. Although retaining the historic façade and front porch of the house with its clapboard siding, symmetrical proportions, deep cornices and prominent corbels was a given, the interior and back of the house were free for reinterpretation.
