Gardiner, NY | This newly constructed energy efficient modern home was designed to take advantage of the sweeping views of the Shawangunk Ridge. Oversized windows, lift-and-slide doors and an open plan help to bring the beauty of the surrounding landscape into the home. A shipping container Modpool with an integral hot tub and aquarium-style viewing window integrate with the modern aesthetic. A simple form, high-efficiency heating/cooling system, high-performance triple-glazed European windows, solar panels, and careful construction detailing make for a low energy use home. Metal siding and roofing, exposed concrete, and uPVC doors and windows make for a durable low-maintenance structure.
