Project Info

The black houses at Hudson Woods include a greenhouses, screen porches with outdoor kitchens, pool houses, pools, studios, garages and more. All built elements are integrated into the natural landscape, and responsive to specific site conditions.

Natural materials are used, including local woods and stone, and structures are hand crafted with local labor. Integrity of the landscape is privileged over ease of construction, and a primary experience of nature is maintained.


We sourced and purchased land, raised capital and formed a development team. Over a period of 6 years, our team designed, built, branded, marketed and sold 26 homes in collaboration with a team of exceptional project partners.
