Pound Ridge Residence

Pound Ridge Residence

Pound Ridge, NY

A rural retreat for an acclaimed international clothing designer and her husband.

The house is inspired by traditional Japanese architecture. The structure is formed of exposed heavy timber construction, a rarity today, which, in addition to its natural beauty, has the added advantage of reducing the need for interior walls. The load-bearing timber beams span the interiors and, with their darkened hues, recede from view as they frames the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the gardens and surrounding woods.

In addition to the architecture, we designed the landscape and furnishings. The result is a holistically conceived environment spanning inside and outside. We paid careful attention to how the couple live, designing custom furnishings, spaces, and experiences that reflect and serve their way of life.
