River House by BWA | Coxsackie, New York


Basil Walter Architects was asked to design a modern residence on a 90-acre farm in upstate New York,one that would feel connected to the landscape, and reflect the latest in green technology. One of the primary materials employed was a natural wood skin made from the tropical hardwoods of Northeast boardwalks, supplied by Sawkill Lumber Co. The house is adjacent to the Hudson River with a spectacular view. Other sustainable elements include geothermal wells around the site, and photovoltaic solar panels on the roof.
