Private Residence
Pennington, NJ

Nestled in the woods on twenty-two acres in Pennington, NJ, this English Arts and Crafts house was originally built as a men’s private retreat house.   An entirely new entrance and foyer were added to establish a true ‘front door’ and provide for a dynamic connection to existing and many new spaces.   This seven-sided asymmetrical space draws from existing design motifs while exerting its own sense of presence and is entirely finished in oiled Spanish cedar.   The floor is natural random Tennessee sandstone.   On the exterior, stone, wood and glass were used to reflect the natural setting and the arched truss over the entry was based on original interior woodwork, which used a different species of wood in every room.   The project included an attached garage, laundry, mudroom and pantry wing.
