Striking modern pad for art collectors in New York

Upstate New York Residence-Kathryn Scott Design-01-1 Kindesign

This striking modern designed residence in Ancram, Upstate New York has been designed by HHF Architects and interior design firm Kathryn Scott Design Studio Ltd. The home is comprised of 4,000 square feet of living space, designed as a country house for two young art collectors as a retreat from life in the city. The architectural design reflects their desire for a simple, sculptural residence standing in contrast to its natural surrounding landscape. The four equal sized boxes covered with corrugated metal panels on the outside create a striking and unexpected home. The interior was kept minimally furnished with the focus remaining on the owners’ contemporary Chinese art collection. Access to the view of the countryside is carefully orchestrated and subtly present without dominating the interior, creating an introspective intimacy and highlighting the art within. Natural light pours though the openings in between the outer boxes creating a changing sculptural display of its own inside each room. The simplicity and careful selection of the furnishings are a reflection of the owners clear vision of their personal style.
