New Book Publishes Centerbrook Houses

Published on December 8th, 2011

Two Centerbrook designed residential projects were included in the recently published book “200 Homes” edited by Mark Cleary (Images Publishing, 2011).

Both houses are in the Northeast. In one, a vestibule set between two stately chimneys connects the slightly asymmetrical, cathedral-ceilinged pavilions of the House in the Connecticut Hills designed by Centerbrook Partners Mark Simon and Jim Childress, both FAIA. The house serves as a gateway to a bucolic estate.

The other, a large addition to a House in the Hudson Valley, was designed by Centerbrook Partner Jefferson B. Riley, FAIA, and Principal Charles G. Mueller, AIA. It extends outward from a 19th century farmhouse that now appears from a country road as a string of traditional, connected barns. It contains a gymnasium and exercise room, spa, great room, bunk room, office, summer room, and a pool house serving an existing pool.

The 600-page book features well illustrated profiles of houses from around the world.
