The makeover was completed by the ingenious folks at Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects along with the help of of Allen and Associates and it combines the timeless elegance of the classical structure with contemporary comfort and ergonomics.
We absolutely adore homes where ingenious designers and architects come together to not only revamp and rejuvenate an old and dreary interior but also end up creating an entirely unique and exciting new design style.
A home that combines the historical past of with a modern lifestyle was designed by Bates Masi Architects to meet the needs of a young couple and their growing family. It is the potato barns in the region that offered the template for this lovely fusion of past and present as the exterior of the home borrows from their classic design.
Originally owned by designer-builder Kipp Stewart the cabin has also hosted the likes of Phillip Johnson and David Whitney in the past. Its latest avatar was crafted by Studio Schicketanz by giving it a breezy overhaul with a new kitchen and bathroom as well as a smart refurbishment.
It is a careful balance between nostalgia and the present as the woodsy cabin look is never lost throughout the ski retreat even as practicality and contemporary décor additions add playful elegance and a sense of refinement. The central living zone features a floor-to-ceiling cold-rolled steel fireplace that becomes the focal point of the area.
