Designed by Hanrahan Meyers Architects, the Holley House in Garrison, New York, is a sophisticated “sanctuary” nestled far away from the Manhattan lofts. Located on a picturesque site near Garrison, the exquisite residence personifies the modern country retreat. It’s made from locally quarried stone, has two parallel planes that slide past one another without any visual interruption. With almost every room given direct access to the outside, contemporary furnishings and a beautiful surrounding environment for solitude, quietness, and privacy, the Holley House is a anti-urban oasis in a world of speed. – via
