Winner of the 2012 Stanford White Awards for Excellence in Classical and Traditional Design, Drumlin Hall in Duchess County New York is a masterful architectural work by Peter Pennoyer.
Beyond the precisely executed dimensional stonework (all hand-carved), the residence is adorned with detailed bas-relief carvings created using hammer and chisel in the time honored traditional method. Beyond the subtle scale of each particular stone block and assembly, the layout of every joint was deeply considered and delicately wrought. The final assembly positively resonates with the many hours of skilled craftsmanship required to achieve such a work in the traditional method at the beginning of the 21st century.
Mr. Pennoyer chose this residence to grace the cover of his new monograph titled, Peter Pennoyer Architects: Apartments, Townhouses, Country Houses.
