Hurricane Irene

Photos taken at a house north of New York City before and after (and one or two during) Hurricane Irene hit in August 2011.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Design with the land. One of the trees on the east side outside the house was a victim of the storm, visible here. (For a sense of scale, note the dog walking around the bottom of the tree.) The house is on the right, atop the slope and beyond the photo's frame. This meant the tree fell away from the house, just one way in which the architecture of the house works with the landscape. As mentioned, the house is open on part of the east side to welcome sunlight, but on the north side, trees help block cool breezes. On the west side the stone walls are partially bermed against the earth to aid in heating and cooling, and an opening in the trees on the south side brings sunlight to the indoor-outdoor dining room.
