The Perfect Weekend Retreat Overlooking the Berkshire Hills

The perfect weekend retreat is that one thing that all of us desire. Whether you are a resident of U.S or a citizen of Europe, when it comes to weekends our minds think alike.

Those two-three days at the week’s end are the days that really matters. Why ? Because all of our energy and motivation comes from them.

Everybody knows that if you’ll spend a great weekend you’ll have a great week. In our society everything is interconnected .

Our article from today is about an owner of a small property that wanted a perfect holiday house for relaxation. Located in Rensselaer County, New York this perfect weekend retreat offers mesmerizing southern views over the Berkshire Hills.

The architect that designed the house is no other than David Jay Weiner. Yes! It’s the architect that designed the Zen House from Colorado and the Solex Cafe from New York.

A place filled with serenity and peace

The architect David Jay Weiner was inspired by a Japanese cultural symbol, worldwide known.

In the spirit of a Japanese kimono, the house is conceived as a single sweeping volumetric sheet enclosure that wraps and folds into itself to form and define two major interior spaces.

Our perfect weekend retreat measures 1,200 square feet of tranquility, specially built for a Japanese client and it features a living dining room, a study room,a large soaking bathtub and a master suite bedroom.

The primary interior space is perfectly design with modern elements and it’s used for living, as well as for cooking and dining. We are talking here about a place where relaxation is born and delivered into the world.

An extended closed-in porch like aperture, analogous to an engawa or ‘in-between space’ found in traditional Japanese architecture, extends off the main space to frame the primary view and create a transition zone between inside and outside.”

“As much of the site as possible has been left untouched and restored for the growth of natural wild flowers, which dominate the surrounding landscape in the summer.
