The New York Times covers Hudson Woods and the burgeoning Hudson Valley region and real estate market.
A two-hour drive north of New York City, Hudson Woods is one of those idyllic vacation destinations that city slickers salivate over—its open skies and rolling hills are a far cry from the city’s claustrophobic chaos.
Nestled in a landmark six-story Renaissance Revival building in New York’s trendy NoHo neighborhood, the loft apartment of Anna Beeber, principal designer of Manhattan interiors firm Champalimaud, hints at its past life as a printing press in the 1890s: The word bindery is crudely written on the freight elevator that enters the space, and holes in the floor are visible where machines once stood. Beeber and her husband had lived happily in the loft for many years—and become familiar with its many intricacies—but as their family began to grow, they decided to turn the once industrial, raw space into a home designed just for them.
Hudson Woods was recently on the cover of Elle Decoration Magazine Indonesia. Titled “Into the Woods,” the article looks at the balance between nature and architecture and the desire to escape busy city life for some peace of mind in the mountains.
The kitchen pantry designed by Lang Architecture for Hudson Woods has been selected as a case piece for the launch of New York City based showroom, Fair NYC. The showroom is a product of Brad Ford, an Interior Designer and founder of Field+Supply and Design Therapy. The pantry and Fair are mentioned in Architectural Digest’s recent article on a new trio of Manhattan furnishings dealers. The kitchen pantry is designed by Lang Architecture and built by Hudson Valley local, Samuel Moyer Furniture.
Principal Architect, Drew Lang was quoted in a New York Observer article this week, which looks into the process of Remodeling a townhouse in New York City.
While the homeowner/architect/contractor troika is enough for the basics, Drew Lang of Lang Architecture noted that the number of people involved in a project can become quite large, and he often works with “an expeditor, a structural engineer and MEP engineer” at a major townhouse project, and depending on the client, will also include a “geotechnical engineer—a soils and below-ground specialist, a lighting designer…a low-voltage consultant to deal with sound, security, telephone and integrated control systems in the house.”
New York’s Hudson River Valley has long been a haunt of the region’s creative types, from the River School painters to folk musicians. There is a quality to the land that runs thick with inspiration. It’s fitting then that New York City–based architect Drew Lang selected the quaint town of Kerhonkson as the home of his latest project, Hudson Woods, a vacation community for innovative, design-conscious New Yorkers.
Hudson Woods has been featured in a great article in the Home section of the New York Times. It’s great to see the growing community of artists, crafstman, and those who deal with it being celebrated New York Times.
