This weekend home for an Architecture in Formation (AiFNY) principal and his family converts one of the oldest remaining rural churches in the Hudson Valley. The original structure had a light-filled interior, while its exterior read like a child’s drawing—simple and iconic. Its transformation was a labor of love. AiFNY introduced 14-foot, triple-hung windows, Corbusian beveled openings, custom wood storm sashes, high-performance insulation, and new thermal barriers to meet contemporary building codes. Creating a loftlike sanctuary while respecting the integrity of the original building, the interior design draws inspiration from a number of sources, including artists Marcel Duchamp, Donald Judd, and Gordon Matta-Clark.
