Christina and Takaaki left Brooklyn for a more minimal lifestyle. They found and renovated an older home in Putnam Valley, NY. What they did with the home is pretty amazing. I am captivated by the truss work, it feels as thought the trusses are holding together the roof line. Takaaki fashioned some of the features to echo the ancient dwellings of rural Japan, 17th century, and his home as a child. The juxtaposition of the exterior and the interiors are beautiful and at the same time, linked by color.
