Weekend Retreat In New York With A Rustic, Cabin-Like Feel: The RiverBanks House
Situated on the banks of the Hudson River, in Saugerties, New York, USA, RiverBanks House by Foz Design was especially design as seven days end family escape. The massive outline is described as a cutting edge, yet inviting one, because of its rustic, cabin-like feel: “The clean forms are a nod to mid-century current architecture, while natural wood, locally quarried stone, expansive windows, and an open idea enhance the experience of a single space that melds seamlessly into its natural surroundings”. A landscape architecture plan imagined Julia Storek Oberhoff adds up to the neatness of the outdoor relaxation areas.
A you step inside, more surprises await. According to the architects, “highlights include the living area, with its soaring 20-foot ceilings and cantilevered decks offering views of the river and surrounding landscape, as well as furnishings that make it welcoming and cozy. The third floor encompasses a suite for the owners, complete with a home office and deck that evokes the feeling of being in a tree house. A guest wing dedicated to the remaining four bedrooms is accessible through a glassed-in hallway—also referred to as the bridge, given that it is situated among trees and water.” [Photography by Garrett Rowland]
