Holley House location: Garrison, NY size: 7,000 s.f. date: completed 2006 contact: hMa hanrahanMeyers architects The client commissioned hanrahanMeyers to design a 7,000 square foot house on a wooded site. The house is a second home for this client whose primary residence is a loft in lower Manhattan. The loft was featured at the Un-Private House show at MoMA, and which traveled internationally. The house program includes a master bedroom suite in a separate pavilion; an entrance pavilion with two guest bedrooms and media room; and a third pavilion with living room, dining, and kitchen. Two stone walls are the main elements of the house, defining and separating the master bedroom suite from the entry area and marking the edge to the public spaces: living, dining, and kitchen. South of the house is a pool and a pool house. The house was designed to be part of its site, incorporating wood, stone, and water to create a quiet and restful retreat from New York City.

What type of stone is this?

This is a limestone from upper NYState. We got it from a local quarry.
The stone-masons spent a full year laying up stone walls before we gave them approval. After all, in addition to this fireplace, there are also two 65-foot long walls, The Wall at the pool, and the fireplace in the master bedroom. So we felt it was important to get it right.

What company makes the stacked stone used on the fireplace?

I have news for you. Our fireplace is made using real stone. I do not appreciate decorators making comments on our details, which are inaccurate. The truth is that if you use real stone, as we did, your finish will look much more solid and substantial than it will if you use a much cheaper tile finish.
We made the stone workers make sample walls for six months before we signed off on the stone work.
Good work takes time, as well as a quality contractor (and probably a good architect!).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Brighten Things Up with Yellow
A large golden rug is a surprise here.
On the other hand, this skylight above a fireplace dramatically accentuates the irregular texture of the stacked stone. By day the hearth glows from above; at night it glows from the fire within.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: Wash the Wall With Sunlight
The source of the light doesn't have to be visible. In fact, there are times when seeing the skylight is akin to the magician revealing the secret. It only takes away from the magic.
