Woodhouse 2.0

We have featured some amazing retreats over the last couple of years, but none as special as this dreamy escape nestled amongst the dense pin oak forests of Long Island, New York. The circular den was envisioned by Marchi Architects, it is distributed over two levels, a ground and basement floor, and is constructed from natural materials such as vertical wood slat cladding and smooth concrete, respecting the essence of the landscape. The unique house is accessed from the driveway leading to the basement garage or from parking on the roof and descending into the house by one of the glass circular light wells. There is also a centralized courtyard space that is entirely glazed, obscuring the boundary between the interior living space and the hidden central space, plus a large swimming pool projecting towards the tree line, and accommodation for 3-5 bedrooms and multiple entertaining spaces.
