Located on the edge of a small town in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, this 2,200-square-foot house occupies a small clearing in the woods. The rectilinear volume sits perpendicular to the end of a long gravel driveway, which continues on as a walking path to a series of hiking trails in the Kaaterskill Mountain range. Upon arrival, a large Ledgestone wall, quarriedlocally and stacked by local artisan masons, demarcates the circular auto court while concealing the home’s entry. The hand-stacked wall presents a seeming dichotomy with the factory-built house: although built on-site from local materials, its fine craftsmanship relates to the attention to detail that was so clearly put into the modular construction behind it.Designed for a family of four with two young boys who enjoy playing on the lawn and hiking the nearby trails, the house’s main level is surrounded by an Ipê deck, drawing the interior bamboo floors out onto the exterior lawn. A media room on the second floor serves as a workshop for the video game–designing father, and solid, bold colors throughout reflect the mother’s Swedish background and her work in the fashion industry.
