Originally created by Guy Chirico Sr. in 1966 as the Scribner Hollow Motor Lodge, the property was designed with modernist elements during a time when the Catskills really started to become the place to be for NYC-dwellers to escape. Since then, the Hudson Valley has seen a massage amount of development that caters to creatives seeking an inspirational refuge.

A perpendicular wing houses the garage. The house has no air conditioning, relying on lake breezes and cross-ventilation for cooling. Each bedroom has a screened door that opens to the deck and an adjustable transom above the hallway door to encourage the circulation of air.

Two fin-like, metal-clad walls rise from the crown of the hill to support a three-story plywood box suspended a full story above grade.
Black steel covers the steeply pitched roof, while the exterior walls are wrapped in charred cedar.
Standing seam siding gives a durable exterior finish, with plywood panels adding warm accents.
The 700-square-foot cabin features a steeply pitched roof that is nearly 23 feet in height.
The architects say that the mirrored finish hasn't caused any problems with the local wildlife.
The cabin is surrounded by a thick forest of birch and spruce.

Colorbond gutters, downpipes, flashings, and cappings have been installed.

The curved battened screen provides privacy for the master suite and gives the extension sculptural appeal.
The modules were installed in just one day.
"To accommodate for the sloping site, the extension is terraced down the block with a slight change in levels between the original house, the entrance way, and the new modular living area," adds the firm.
The lower level of the Ivanhoe extension is wrapped in black-stained timber, while the upper portion features blackbutt vertical cladding.
The white board-and-batten facade takes cues from the surrounding stables and is surrounded by billowing grass and birch trees.
The tapered limestone chimney draws inspiration from an existing shed built of dry-stacked local stone.
"The porch’s distinctive 30-foot peak is discernible from a great distance, and its rhythmic, horizontal cypress slats are a contemporary interpretation of traditional vented gables," add the architects.
A waste-management plan has been developed to minimize, mitigate, and/or completely eliminate construction waste, while also properly disposing unused materials.
The historic site consists of an old farmhouse, stable, and shed, along with bunkers and artillery foundations from the both World War I and World War II. The stable has been converted into a modern 5,683-square-foot bed and breakfast establishment called The Bunkers.
Incisions made in the façade amplify the contrast between the red and yellow brickwork.
Streamlined sections of metal-framed windows with triple glazing stylishly connect the brick and wooden volumes.
For the farmhouse residence, the team has removed all the elements that did not have any significant heritage value. "Valuable historical constructions are thus brought into equilibrium with the scarcely added volumes," says Damiaan Vanhoutte, a co-founder of the firm.
The original farmhouse structure has been revamped into a 5,038-square-foot house for the owners of the B&B.

After searching for an idyllic site for their retreat, the couple finally came across a plot of land raised above a valley, which catches great light and overlooks views of Pelverata’s Sherwood Hill Conservation Area.
