Our client’s love for travel and art inspired the design that pervades through this special custom home on the Gold Coast of New Jersey with sweeping views of the Hudson River and New York City. The topographically challenging site enhances the overlapping volumes to create intimate spaces and an open flow throughout the home. Elevating the beauty of raw materials – corten steel, board form concrete and Italian stone are married together to create a luxurious but welcoming space called home.
Outdoor Living Space
River Facing Facade
Nestled into the rock face of the Palisades, this California modern influenced home elegantly marries the transparency of glass with the grounding solidity of concrete. The horizontal forms stack upon each other but are punctuated by cleverly placed vertical forms that integrate the wood burning Shigu shou ban technique, which visually softens the mass of the pool volume. Celebrating the raw materiality of wood altered by Shig shou ban, textured board formed concrete, glass and locally sourced blue stone, this home is truly a welcomed respite from the everyday hustle.
With sweeping views of the Hudson River and New York City, this lovely home was built with painstaking attention to detail. The L-shaped layout of the home compliments the sloping topography of the site. From the welcoming round two story entry vestibule, to the open cathedral living room, to the personally selected exposed wood panels for the ceiling in the dining and kitchen are, this home is a complete personal expression of the owner through the collaborative eyes of Paul and the builder.
