After living in Manhattan for decades, the owners – a couple nearing retirement – sought to trade the confines of city living for a site with sweeping views of the Hudson River. They wanted a compact home that was as extraordinary as the vista it offered, equipped with just enough space for two.  The houseis lifted high in the air to enhance views, with storage spaces and an outdoor recreational zone below.Save this picture!© Emily AndrewsThe living space is open and airy – fitting for a house floating in the trees. A long kitchen island and low cabinetry near the built-in banquette provide ample storage while maintaining sight lines to the landscape. The master suite has built-in wardrobes flanking either side in lieu of a master closet to maximize space. The built-in bed conceals a TV on a lift mechanism, so it can be hidden when not in use, preserving the view through the full height windows. With the bath open to the bedroom, the couple can get glimpses of the water from the vanity.Save this picture!© Emily AndrewsThe home office, serving as a threshold to the guest bedroom, offers additional views when seated at the built-in desk. A covered central deck, enclosed on three sides, can transform into a seasonal outdoor room with a firepit and drop-down insect screens. The guest room features a murphy bed, so it can be used as additional living space when unoccupied. Below, a long lap pool and deck provide shade while exercising or lounging in the water.Save this picture!© Emily AndrewsSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Emily AndrewsThe site is entered via a winding gravel drive through meadow grasses and lilacs up to a framed view of the Hudson River through the carport. The lightness and reflectivity of the façade enhance the reading of a hovering volume in the sky, resting on just a few thin steel columns. Metal panels on the underside bounce light and reflections from the pool water below.Save this picture!© Emily AndrewsFrom the approach, the house utilizes daylight but maintains privacy by means of clerestory windows. The slatted ipe volume contains vertical circulation to the main level. Located on one of Croton-on-Hudson’s highest overlooks, the house was conceived around maximizing panoramic views of the town and river below via floor-to-ceiling windows across the facade.

The Hudson River House’s simple form, extensive glazing, and subdued material palette reinforce the project’s initial goal – prioritizing the stunning natural landscape.Save this picture!© Emily AndrewsProject gallerySee allShow lessUNStudio Begins Construction on Visionary Financial Forum in GeorgiaArchitecture NewsThe Architectural Trends that Dominated News Stories in 2018Articles Share Hudson River House / Resolution: 4 Architecture Photographs ArchDaily 2017 Montana Contracting Joseph Tanney, Robert Luntz Hudson River House / Resolution: 4 ArchitectureSave this projectSaveHudson River House / Resolution: 4 Architecture Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeResolution: 4 ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCroton-on-HudsonUnited StatesPublished on December 17, 2018Cite: “Hudson River House / Resolution: 4 Architecture” 17 Dec 2018.
