Charming midcentury modern cottage overlooking the Hudson River

Architecture and design studio Garrison Foundry is responsible for the renovation of this midcentury modern cottage house located in Garrison, New York. Overlooking the Hudson River, this cottage had its charms, yet had not been renovated since the 1970s. A full gut renovation of both floors of this 1,400 square foot cabin involved removing a central column that obstructed views to the river.

The principle goal was to open this cottage as much as possible to the view while retaining the charms of the original structure. Steel and metal bi-fold doors were integrated into the design to bring in natural light and integrate the view off the deck. There are two bathrooms in this cottage, both were designed with simple details including naturally rich materials such as concrete, brass, and ceramic.

The existing maple floors were stained a custom tint to look like walnut. The project team wanted to keep the simple charms of this cottage, allowing the natural surroundings to open up this space while maintaining a cozy upstate country feel.

What We Love: This midcentury modern cottage offers a beautiful renovation both inside and out. A large deck helps to expand the living space to the outdoors while blurring indoor-outdoor boundaries. The interior spaces are open and airy and the newly integrated steel doors help to make the main living area feel larger. A tranquil setting on the water makes this home very idyllic, when can we move in?

Beautiful restoration. I would have painted the front door orange, though.
