“Gardens never end and buildings never begin” is how Alden B. Dow F.A.I.A (1904-1983) described his own individual organic design philosophy. His own Home and Studio located in Midland, Michigan, exemplifies how this incredible architect masterfully weaves structure and nature together for the ultimate living environment. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989, the Home and Studio continues to engage the imagination and elicits emotional responses in all who experience this powerful statement of Mid-Twentieth Century Modern architecture. Planted into an encompassing pond, the Home and Studio is alive with reflective light, soaring roof lines, diverging angles, brilliant color and the perfect balance of enticement and tranquility. It truly is an “oasis of architecture and inspiration.” Schedule your visit for architectural tours, educational programs, Michigan history and much more.

7 MILES TO KINGSTON
Your Gateway to Hudson Valley History and natural beauty in a Colonial Stone House appointed with comfortable modern conveniences.
The 300-year-old House was fully restored with lots of love to details to keep the integrity of that beautiful house.
The house was built by a cattle farmer with a lot of land, he was quiet influential in that region. The barns surrounding the house had been built first and later he started to build the stone-house and it was extended over the years. Later on the House was used as an Inn, before it was converted to a one family home.
We restored 3 of the fire-places on the ground floor. And we also put the most energy efficient heating and cooling system (heat pumps) to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We renovated the house with a lot of love and filled it with old original and very modern parts.
Behind the house with a panoramic view of the Catskills Range is our Saltwater swimming pool with a patio and sun-chairs to relax and a full functioning BBQ gas grill.
Our comfortably spacious kitchen filled with modern conveniences including 6-burner Viking range and dishwasher.
There are 6 acres of land surrounding the property wich includes 2 barns and at the far end is the Esopus Creek immersed by a nature preserve.
The living room has a working fire place as well and a " Vico Magistretti for Cassina” leather sofa to relax and a video projector with a pull down screen to make your own movie nights.
The dining room sits 14 people for some great dinner parties and festivities on a beautiful “Pace” dining table made out of Maple.
The sun room has nice vintage wood table to sit 12 people comfortable ceiling fans to give it a nice breeze in summer.
Please contact us with any questions you might have. We invite you to be inspired in one of the oldest Stone Houses situated in the Hudson Valley at the Gateway to the Catskills

We design buildings, renovate space, build furniture and formulate brands for small businesses. Our approach on a project is to discover its 'essence' by telling a story. The story often begins with concepts that manifest and transform into built form. The concepts unfold through careful study of client needs, client rituals, site analysis, context, scale, orientation, views, light, ventilation and material. An important part of this research includes referencing historic examples of similar project types overlaid with today's sustainable mindset. Everything is considered part of the whole and collectively combines to reveal the spirit of each project.
From concept through construction, we take the time to ensure the client has a full understanding of the process from start to finish. We collaborate with building departments, sustainability consultants, engineers, contractors, artists and craftsmen whose individual skills are essential to create the final product. We understand the challenges of design and construction and seize the opportunity to work together as a team to deliver clean, timeless solutions. Since this behind-the-scenes collaboration is rarely seen, we use social media as a platform to highlight the stages of the process. We see this collaborative effort as another important component in revealing the project's story. This story gives meaning and value to the project, to our clients, to the design profession and to the greater community.
