Fall 2020

Our most recent featured project offers a tour of a new summer cottage on the coast of Maine that we designed for a discerning, peripatetic couple. Designed to have the sensibility of an agrarian English country estate, we created a series of farm buildings anchored around a courtyard filled with fruiting apple trees and centered on a long granite trough reflecting pool and surrounded by fruiting apple trees. For a full tour of the property and to see inside the guest cottage, with interiors inspired by Maine’s regional rustic barn vernacular, click here > [Photos by Eric Piasecki]

What a thrill to see our work featured in a number of publications over the last few months! The November issue of Elle Decor features the renovation of a classic New York City apartment we collaborated on with Tom Scheerer. Departures interviewed Gil and included Middlefield, his new Greek Revival house in the Hudson Valley for a fall story on the ongoing Greek Revival ‘Revival’ residential architectural trend, and Architectural Digest recently featured the latest design evolution of Gil’s own Greenwich Village apartment, a place he’s called home for over 20 years. The guest cottage we recently designed in coastal Maine, which you can see in our Featured Project section here, was the cover of Traditional Building’s August issue and in House Beautiful’s September “Design School” issue, Gil discussed the aesthetics of Farmhouse design. Additionally, Country Living’s November issue focused on spaces we’ve designed that are as comfortable as they are stylish, while their September issue showed how plaid can punch-up a powder room. To read these stories and see other recent media coverage, including an interview with Gil in UK Country & Town House on how to design twin bedrooms, visit our Press section >

Our newly virtual world has brought with it opportunities to connect in different ways and Gil has enjoyed doing a number of different video interviews and chats. For House Beautiful’s new Design School series, Gil talked about how history, context and memory inform every project and help him to create in indelible sense of place. For Schumacher’s “Deep Dive with Dara” series, Gil had the chance to chat with dear friend and Schumacher’s creative director, Dara Caponigro about how to bring character to a new house.

We are delighted to have our work included in some of fall’s most beautiful books, including Architectural Digest’s The Most Beautiful Rooms in the World, Rattan: A World of Elegance & Charm by Lulu Lytle and S is for Style: The Schumacher Book of Decoration by Dara Caponigro.
