If you’re torn between a sleek, city-style structure and the tranquility of the country, this contemporary home in rural Taghkanic could be the property of your dreams. Dubbed the “sleeve house” for its elongated, stacked exterior, its angular attributes perfectly juxtapose those of its soft surroundings. To create its dramatic façade, sustainably-sourced Accoya wood skin boards of varied thickness endured a Japanese finishing technique, known as shou sugi ban, for a charred, weathered feel that’s reminiscent of the Hudson Valley’s many aged barns. Inside, the stately pattern continues atop living and dining spaces. Raw concrete floors flow out to glass feature walls, where views of the encompassing mountains and rolling meadows make this modern space all the more striking. Public and private spaces are separated into two intersecting volumes, boasting a vibe that’s equally clean-lined, comfortable, and functional, while the upstairs rooftop deck offers even more room to take in some fresh air.
