Forest-Embracing Abodes
Dutchess Country Residence is Made of Wood and Passable Glass

{SummaryTitle}

Allied Works Architecture accentuates the relationship between nature and structure in its charming Dutchess Country Residence. The cozy cottage is a relaxed retreat from suburban life, and a shelter formed from native wood and penetrating full-wall windowing.

The best way to execute such off-the-grid projects is to integrate them with the landscape, and the sprawling plan of this delightful dwelling attempts not to challenge the tree canopy and its lush and leafy surroundings. Located in New York State, the home and attached gallery space invite the outdoors in and the inside out through a series of expansive curtain walls.

What I wouldn’t give to appreciate this serene sanctuary in person. Alas, one must be satisfied to enjoy the Dutchess Country Residence in photo form.
