Carol Kurth Architecture has received the 2015 Innovation in Design Award from New York Cottages & Gardens Magazine for their modern Art House 2.0 project. The Magazine’s editors and judges awarded the project its top honor at their awards gala held in New York City. The Innovation in Design Awards program celebrates the best architectural and interior design projects in the New York City metro area.
Art House 2.0 was designed as a serene, modern retreat to showcase the client’s growing modern art collection. The project is nestled amidst natural stone outcroppings and untouched forest and uses indigenous stone and cedar to juxtapose rectilinear forms and glass expanses. The use of shaded horizontal overhangs takes advantage of natural daylight to illuminate the interior and creates a passive solar effect. Ms. Kurth designed the client’s first home more than 25 years ago and collaborated with them again to design an open, airy, gallery-like backdrop that frames the gorgeous Westchester woodland views.
