Bedford Residence Bedford, New York
completed 2007

Completed in 2007, RHBPC’s Bedford Residence is a 10,000 SF cottage-style home in the hills of upper Westchester County, New York.  The design and detailing of the house, inside and out, are based in large part on the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century Shingle-style houses of New England while borrowing lightly from the Craftsman and other movements. The interior is inspired by a variety of historic styles and tastes, depending on the space and use. The plan emulates the classic progression from public to private for formal gatherings, but places the Kitchen in the center to act as the hub for life in the home.
