The Black Exterior Of This Home Leads To A Warm Wood Lined Interior

Architecture firm Birdseye Design has completed a modern home in New York State’s Adirondack Park, that lies on a property that has been owned by the same family for four generations.

The new home replaced a dilapidated and structurally unsound building, and bought new life back to the property, acting as a central hub for the family.

The architects collaborated with Brooke Michelsen Design to complete the interiors, which feature wood-lined walls and ceilings immediately apparent upon stepping inside.

The dining room has a wood table that sits below an extremely large pendant light with a white shade. The dining room also enjoys a nearby recessed bar area as well as a double-sided fireplace.
