Updating an old home comes with its challenges, but when you’re faced with an unconventional site like the one seen above, adding a room isn’t as easy as pouring some foundation. When approaching this project in Pound Ridge, Method Design wasn’t afraid of thinking outside the box, and they applied a clever, eco-friendly design solution to the challenging renovation: a new room set on stilts. This beautiful addition is not only functional, but it also perfectly mirrors and melds with its sloped and wooded locale.
