House 432

Sitting on top of a 4-acre property cleaved from the 60-acre John Jay Homestead historic site in the 1950s, this location in the Hudson Valley is a transition between suburban developments and rural upstate New York.  The materials used and geometry of the new house, garage and site elements is consistent with the scale and orientation of Jay’s abandoned stone and wood barns.  The house has high thermal mass to improve energy performance and is L-shaped to create a natural sound barrier from distant highway noises, with all bedrooms facing a quiet courtyard.
