Bedford Residence, Bedford Corners, N.Y.
Joel Sanders Architect with Balmori Associates
New York

“Architects often think of buildings as an independent sculptural object that sits in landscape,” says Joel Sanders, AIA. “Our intention was to have the house recede, and what would catch your eye is this white lining that begins inside and goes down the hill.” Built on the solid foundation of a structurally unsound mid-century home, the remodel’s open-plan public zone has a dark shell with folded graphic elements—white concrete floors and countertops and a suspended drywall ceiling—that link the house, landscape, and pool house. Landscape architect Diana Balmori extended the concrete flooring outside as irregular pavers that interlace the landscape and wrap up over the pool house. “The stones in the swimming pool were set in the same way as the stone around the living-room fireplace,” she says. Our judges appreciated the “thoughtful way the materials go through the house” and its “appealing complexity and richness.”
