HUDSON DESIGN Architecture & Construction Mgmt
The conversion of this iconic American barn into a Writer’s Studio was conceived of as a tranquil retreat with natural light and lush views to stimulate inspiration for both husband and wife. Originally used as a garage with two horse stalls, the existing stick framed structure provided a loft with ideal space and orientation for a secluded studio. Signature barn features were maintained and enhanced such as horizontal siding, trim, large barn doors, cupola, roof overhangs, and framing. New features added to compliment the contextual significance and sustainability aspect of the project were reclaimed lumber from a razed barn used as flooring, driftwood retrieved from the shores of the Hudson River used for trim, and distressing / wearing new wood finishes creating an aged look. Along with the efforts for maintaining the historic character of the barn, modern elements were also incorporated into the design to provide a more current ensemble based on its new use. Elements such a light fixtures, window configurations, plumbing fixtures and appliances were all modernized to appropriately represent the present way of life.

Cummings Architecture + Interiors
Looking at this home today, you would never know that the project began as a poorly maintained duplex. Luckily, the homeowners saw past the worn façade and engaged our team to uncover and update the Victorian gem that lay underneath. Taking special care to preserve the historical integrity of the 100-year-old floor plan, we returned the home back to its original glory as a grand, single family home. The project included many renovations, both small and large, including the addition of a a wraparound porch to bring the façade closer to the street, a gable with custom scrollwork to accent the new front door, and a more substantial balustrade. Windows were added to bring in more light and some interior walls were removed to open up the public spaces to accommodate the family’s lifestyle.

place architecture:design
Our clients wanted to create a room that would bring them closer to the outdoors; a room filled with natural lighting; and a venue to spotlight a modern fireplace. Early in the design process, our clients wanted to replace their existing, outdated, and rundown screen porch, but instead decided to build an all-season sun room. The space was intended as a quiet place to read, relax, and enjoy the view. The sunroom addition extends from the existing house and is nestled into its heavily wooded surroundings. The roof of the new structure reaches toward the sky, enabling additional light and views. The floor-to-ceiling magnum double-hung windows with transoms, occupy the rear and side-walls. The original brick, on the fourth wall remains exposed; and provides a perfect complement to the French doors that open to the dining room and create an optimum configuration for cross-ventilation. To continue the design philosophy for this addition place seamlessly merged natural finishes from the interior to the exterior. The Brazilian black slate, on the sunroom floor, extends to the outdoor terrace; and the stained tongue and groove, installed on the ceiling, continues through to the exterior soffit. The room's main attraction is the suspended metal fireplace; an authentic wood-burning heat source. Its shape is a modern orb with a commanding presence. Positioned at the center of the room, toward the rear, the orb adds to the majestic interior-exterior experience. This is the client's third project with place architecture: design. Each endeavor has been a wonderful collaboration to successfully bring this 1960s ranch-house into twenty-first century living.

A garage is a highly-valued addition to any home, providing storage and security for items such as cars, tools, lawn mowers and seasonal decorations. If you don’t want the hoo-ha of a garage, a carport is a cheaper alternative, which can protect your prized vehicles from the elements, provide shade, and create a sense of privacy. A utilitarian space, garage designs should focus on functionality above all else, so look to shelving and other storage solutions that will best maximise the small square meterage. Where you don’t have anything to store, consider transforming the space into a workspace or extra bedroom instead.

What are some smart garage storage solutions?


Garage and carports are often filled with heavy equipment, so your storage will need to be strong and sturdy. Line the walls with shelves and cabinets, add a workbench, include wall hooks for awkward items such as brooms and shovels and add wall-mounted racks for bikes. More expensive items can be placed in lockable toolboxes. They key is to have a place for everything, so as to avoid a cluttered mess that not even your lawn mower can squeeze into.

How do I make a statement with my garage design?


Garage designs are easily neglected or set aside in the ‘too hard’ basket, when, in reality, something as simple as a garage door or garden element can transform the space. Whether you want yours to stand out or blend in, garages should be an integral part of your home design, and not just an afterthought. Consider making yours a central feature with an enticing garage door, or turn its form into a sculptural feature.
