Catskills Residence Crafted From Locally-Sourced, Sustainable Materials

Lang Architecture designed this two-story, model residence in the Hudson Woods community where 26 architect-designed homes will be crafted from locally-sourced, sustainable materials. The 2,800 square foot house rests within 131 acres of forest in the Catskills/Hudson River Valley area and features a flipped floor plan.

Each of the dwellings in Hudson Woods will be built with sustainability in mind and the buyers will get to choose between two house plans. The properties can be customized inside and out the the buyers specifications.
