Modern Retreat

Modern Retreat

Taghkonic, New York

This modern retreat integrates seamlessly into a hillside overlooking an expansive meadow in upstate New York.  The site offered dramatic views not only from the home, but also of the home upon approach.  A simple palette of native plants is used to integrate and provide contrast to the modern, angular lines of the home.  An emphasis is placed on blurring the lines between interior and exterior spaces by using expansive glass and continuing the ground plane to the outdoors.  The horizon of the infinity edge pool gestures out to the distant meadow. A native sedge was used to create a soft, green carpet, fulfilling the clients desire for no lawn. Outdoor lighting adds to the drama of the site and architecture.
