From Architectural Digest: Hudson Valley Mid-Century Before & After

  |  December 14, 2017

“Sometimes what is outside is more important than what is inside,” architect Rustam-Marc Mehta was quoted as saying in a recent Architectural Digest piece about a Hudson Valley home he renovated with Tal Schori, his partner at GRT Architecture.

The home in question? A Mid-Century Modern in the lower Hudson Valley that originally belonged Roberta Thrun, one of the first female architects to graduate from Columbia University’s architecture program. Thrun’s grandson bought the property back and enlisted the services of Mehta and Schori to give it a reno job. And, it’s a renovation that’s all about bringing the outside inside, thanks to the presence of copious glass windows.

We don’t know about you, but we love to see some good renovation ‘Before & After’ pictures, and if you’re the same way, we suggest you take a peek at the Architectural Digest photo gallery of this home. While keeping Thrun’s original Mid-Mod details like terra-cotta floor tiling and the Douglas fir wood beams that run the length of the living room ceiling, the new renovation darkens its original dark-brown in tone in some places and lightens it in others.

Here are more picture from the post-renovation side of things from To see what the house looked like pre-renovation, see the post, linked above.
