S3 Architecture in collaboration with Upstate Modernist has created this modernist woodland retreat that provides an idyllic cantilevered respite in Rhinebeck, New York. Rhinebeck is a charming, historic town nestled in New York’s scenic Hudson Valley. 

Encompassing 800 square feet of living space, this modern refuge is perched on a forested cliff with restful views. Rustic materials combine with masculine and minimal interiors to focus your attention on the tranquility of this home’s surroundings.

When designing this home, the architect’s main goal was to begin the project with a preservation-focused plan that maintains natural spaces and sight lines.

This home is unique and site-specific, designed to respond to the natural characteristics of the land on which it sits, and built with sustainable and efficient building techniques.
