Featured Design Installation: Private Residence, Rhinecliff, NY

Here's a little sneak peak at a new design installation that is currently still under construction in Rhinecliff, New York.

Located in one of the oldest hamlets along The Hudson River, this private residence, designed by local architect Warren Temple Smith, features several products from The Hudson Company's full product line, including Reclaimed Softwood Joists, Reclaimed Barn Siding [Brown Board], and Reclaimed Hemlock [Surfaced Mushroom Wood].

Above right you will see our Reclaimed Factory Maple used in an engineered chevron pattern designed to work with a set of bi-fold doors. Above left, you can see new structural beams custom-wrapped with Reclaimed Barn Siding [Brown Board] to introduce an weathered patina to the home's interior aesthetic (note the chevron bi-fold doors in the background). In the same image, below the large exposed beams, you will notice Reclaimed Softwood Joists installed above the kitchen.

Stay tuned for more photos and updates on this design installation in the weeks to come.

A Modern Oasis | The Hudson Company in Dwell Magazine

In 2005, actors David Alan Basche and Alysia Reiner purchased an abandoned townhouse in Harlem, NY. After teaming up with builder Nicolas Moons and architect Hannah Purdy, the husband and wife duo dedicated two years to renovating and reimagining the dilapidated home. Twenty four months later, the once-neglected space was transformed from a hollow shell to a modern oasis

Following the birth of their daughter a few years later, David and Alysia’s emphasis on sustainability and using recycled, reusable materials took on greater significance and became increasingly more important to the couple. Working with Alan and Alysia on blending reclaimed materials with their renovated contemporary town house, The Hudson Company utilized rough hewn, spalted maple to create a custom wooden countertop that contrasts the otherwise sleek, modern interior. Continuing upward to the second floor, Alan and Alysia chose to incorporate Hudson Company Mushroom Wood as a decorative accent wall with an organic and sculpted feel. Reclaimed from wooden mushroom-growing beds, this product is a hybrid of softwoods with deep, textural aesthetics and a rich functional history. 

Take a closer look at the work we did inside David Alan Basche and Alysia Reiner’s Harlem home featured in the May 2015 issue of Dwell Magazine.
