The structure’s uncomplicated geometry is enriched by the boldness of its materials, resulting in a balanced composition that is both sensuous and refined. The house is a personal refuge that takes its design cues from the colors and textures of the natural landscape.Save this picture!© Steve FreihonThe site boundary is defined by a series of Norway spruces, the singular element guiding visitors to the secluded entrance. The curved Cor-Ten wall is heroic, yet pragmatically justified as it carves a modest entry court that amplifies the sound of the stream running parallel to the house. The wall also operates as a spine that organizes the interior spaces into a series of cinematic portals to the landscape. The character of the minimalist interior is profoundly impacted by the changes of the wooded site from season to season.The high performance thermal envelope consists of 14 inch thick Structural Insulated Panels and quadruple-pane windows constructed with FSC-certified wood. The house employs a direct-exchange geothermal heating system, energy recovery ventilator (ERV), rainwater harvesting system, and many other sustainable building technologies.  With a HERS Index of 44, A House in the Woods is over 55% more energy efficient than a typical new home. The project was certified LEED-Silver in February 2013.Project gallerySee allShow lessThink Space Launches Latest Competition: Environment / SubtractionArchitecture NewsCenter for New Technologies / Francisco MangadoSelected Projects Share Year:  Projects Photographs:  Steve Freihon Structural Engineer: United States CopyHouses•Ulster County, United States CopyAbout this officeWilliam Reue ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUlster CountyHousesUnited StatesPublished on March 05, 2014Cite: “A House In The Woods / William Reue Architecture” 05 Mar 2014.
