Hudson Valley Retreat

Project Brief

We traveled by canoe to a former summer camp at this spring-fed lake in the Hudson Valley. The owners had been eyeing the property for years from the other end of the lake for a home and spiritual retreat. The near pristine woodlands was interrupted only by an occasional rustic reminder of camp life. All in all, six structures remained, but just barely.

Hudson Design convinced the Planning Board to allow us to convert the ruins into four usable structures: Main House, Yoga Studio, Boat House/Bike Shop and Guest House. The Main House filled the primary footprint of the Camp Infirmary which has a captivating long view down the center of the lake. The buildings are constructed of native stone and
fir timber frame with copper and carpentry finishes and details by local artisans.
