Entry Description

With sweeping views of the Hudson River as a backdrop,
Workshop/APD transformed this Briarcliff Manor home from
an outdated traditional ranch into a modern work of
architecture. The new home, which surprisingly sits atop the
existing foundation (with only a few minor enlargements),
feels three times the size of the original. Much of the
original shape of the home, including the main
gabled roof that runs over the central living areas, was also
retained. These elements were re-thought with modern
materials and details and carefully blended
into the new language. Inside, the view takes over and
when you stand at the Living Room windows, the ground
drops away leaving you floating in the
trees above the river.
