Artful House Envisioned as a Personal Refuge in the Woods

Residential project House in the Woods was label as House of the Month 2014 by Architectural Record. The artful house was designed by William Reue Architecture at the base of the Shawangunk Mountains, in Ulster County, New York. Responding to the client’s values of order, beauty, and environmental stewardship, the property serves as a personal refuge for someone looking to disconnect from routine and connect with nature and the wilderness.

“The residence is the result of the studied relationship between two opposing geometries – a long sculptural wall clad in Cor-Ten weathering steel and a mass of stratified bluestone that appears to have emerged from the boulder-strewn earth. Locally-sourced materials and strategic siting stitch the house into the natural world while contributing to its sustainability for the modern one.” Interior is pretty much inspired by the wonderful natural landscape. Tones of browns, beiges and greys adorn the furniture, walls and floors. An uncomplicated design line defined the living space, which opens to the endless maze of trees. The view is absolutely inspiring, no matter the season.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
