The great hall was inspired by the great center halls of shingle style houses—generous in size and timeless in beauty. The center hall connects the major rooms on the first floor: the broad living room, the octagonal dining room and the cubic stair hall.

With one wall composed of black, oversized octagonal tile, another wall with an organic freeform tile design and a floor with patterned marble tile, this small and modern bathroom is a treat for the eyes. A floating vanity and modern wall-mounted toilet echo the geometric lines of the tile. Brass accents give the room a little bit of glam.
Due to the existing terrain, the basement level opens directly on grade. The rear of the home becomes more informal with the octagonal family room and varying roof lines of the bedrooms on the second floor. Just to the left is the poolhouse and pool.
This Chappaqua property, with its strict setback requirements and a 10 to 12-foot drop-off, posed a design challenge, even with four acres to play with. To accommodate the landscape, the home was designed to have two stories in the front and three in the back, allowing for a walkout basement.
Large windows let in sunlight to brighten and highlight this sophisticated living room.

Graphic, geometric patterned floor tile serves as the focal point and color palette inspiration for this bathroom. Wooden, flat panel vanity drawers bring a natural, warm element to the black and white space. Since an octagonal shower window is the only source of natural light, white walls and subway tile help brighten the room.
This space also showcases a custom velvet sofa designed to fit the octagonal corner of the room. Our clients also wanted a fireplace and retractable TV, all of which is also housed in the built-in bookcases. Another challenge was to properly incorporate all of the state-of-the-art technology in this room while still retaining the elegant appearance.
