Claverack House

Claverack House is an updated, imagined version of a house originally designed by Heide and Rafe when they first left Brooklyn, NY in 2003. This gem of a project captures a few of our favorite things, Shaker architecture, Dutch barns, and a modern intervention.

With its austere exterior and quirky proportions, the main house becomes equally dependent on the nearby barn. The previous version of this project included both the house and barn but was never as successful as it is now with the inclusion of a glass connector that bridges the Shaker influence with the rustic monolith.
