Riverhouse by BWArchitects
Featuring spectacular Hudson River views, this green modern single family residence located in upstate New York was designed by BWArchitects.
Description by BWArchitects
BWA was asked to design a modern residence on a 90-acre farm in upstate New York, one that would feel connected to the landscape, and reflect the latest in green technology.
The two materials employed are sleek, but subtle: a natural wood skin for the interior,and a dark cement board for the exterior, with various points of visible contrast. The house is adjacent to the Hudson River, a spectacular view of which greets the visitor upon entering the house. Geothermal wells around the site, and photovoltaic solar panels on the roof ensure a clean and efficient energy flow.
