BarlisWedlick re-imagines upstate new york residence as a private wellness retreat

architecture firm BarlisWedlick has restored a mid-century residence in armonk, a hamlet in westchester county, new york. the home, known as ‘beckoning path’, is a 8,000-square-foot (743 sqm) dwelling sited on 27 acres (11 hectares) of lakefront property. designed by jens quistgaard in the 1960s, the home was originally owned by ted nierenberg, founder of dansk international designs, and includes scandinavian touches such as wood imported from denmark, vaulted ceilings, expansive glass walls, and a distinctive copper roof.

BarlisWedlick was tasked by the current owner to re-imagine the home as a private wellness retreat, complete with a swimming pool housed within a new 1,000-square-foot (93 sqm) addition. the property was reconstructed to include four additional bedrooms, two changing rooms, and a home theater on the lower level. wherever possible, the architects used passive house principles to address the thermal challenges of the mid-century, timber-frame structure, while maintaining its original formal and structural expression.
