30 Year Farmhouse by Palette Architecture

After working with a city couple on a renovation of their Manhattan townhouse, Palette Architecture was brought in to design the renovation and addition of a historic farmhouse on their estate near Millbrook, New York. The house served as a frequent get-away for three generations of extended family and the couple wanted to spend more time there, so additional bedrooms and living spaces were needed, as well as some office space for working. The project aimed to establish new connections between the historic structure and the modern addition with views of its stunning landscape. Photography by Pavel Bendov.

Hawthorn Hood by BENT Architecture

It became apparent, through early investigations, that the resultant design would likely be heavily compromised due to a number of inherent limitations in the house and site; the most significant being the solar orientation of the allotment.

Wattletree House by Design by AD

Wattletree House is a project designed by Design by AD. Sitting stealthy behind the original heritage home, Wattletree House expands its presence through a newly defined footprint. Ensuring the original Edwardian era frontage remains the focus from approach, the addition is cloaked in a darked palette to emphasise its recessive intent, yet still has a unique boldness. In an honouring of the established nature and scale of homes in the area, the preservation of heritage was a key driver throughout, opting to celebrate the differences between old and new by way of contrast, instead of mimicking styles throughout.

A single-family home being built on a beautiful large plot in Tomaszow Mazowiecki. The house is being constructed next to the current home of the investor and is intended to replace it. The first phase of the investment was a multi-station garage, which, due to a significant difference in the terrain’s elevation, was proposed by us to be built underground. This solution allowed hiding its large volume, thereby minimally interfering with the landscape and enhancing privacy. Photography by KUOO TAMIZO ARCHITECTS.
