2019 Best of Design Awards winners for Building Renovation — Residential

2019 Best of Design Award winner for Building Renovation-Residential: Phillipsport Church House
Designer: Architecture in Formation
Location: Wurtsboro, New York

This weekend home for an Architecture in Formation (AiFNY) principal and his family converts one of the oldest remaining rural churches in the Hudson Valley. The original structure had a light-filled interior, while its exterior read like a child’s drawing—simple and iconic. Its transformation was a labor of love. AiFNY introduced 14-foot, triple-hung windows, Corbusian beveled openings, custom wood storm sashes, high-performance insulation, and new thermal barriers to meet contemporary building codes. Creating a loftlike sanctuary while respecting the integrity of the original building, the interior design draws inspiration from a number of sources, including artists Marcel Duchamp, Donald Judd, and Gordon Matta-Clark.
