Peaceable Kingdom

New York City
Originally a guest house, this building grew to become the main residence on the landscape it shares with Japanese maples, perennial and vegetable gardens, waterfowl aviaries, and hundreds of extraordinary animals. Native stone and reclaimed wood give this modern structure the feeling of an Arts and Crafts lodge. Many light fixtures are Tiffany Studio originals, and vintage Stickley furniture abounds. Rugs and curtains exemplify fine modern hand-weaving. These rooms are meant to be filled with children, guests, and flowers.
