The Brooklyn Home:
Modern Havens in the City
Hudson Woods is a true family affair. The Catskills retreat was designed for the family of TBHCo’s co-founder and managing partner, Bill Caleo, as a year-round escape. As part of Hudson Woods, a 130-acre sustainable community developed by Lang Architecture, the property shared the ethos of TBHCo, enlisting Passive House principles and showcasing regionally-sourced materials.
Bill’s sister and business partner, Lyndsay Caleo Karol, and her husband, Artist-in-Residence Fitzhugh Karol, then swooped in to align the interiors with TBHCo’s hallmark style. The goal? Part rustic camp, part modernist barn. To help achieve that in the kitchen, Lyndsay worked with fabricators to design a cafeteria-style marble-top table with swing-arm seats for 12. Just as many can comfortably sleep at the residence, thanks to a bunk room and a guest cottage. (In addition to a playhouse, a pool and a pool pavilion.) Countless bespoke pieces, including the entry console composed of charred timber beams, add one-of-a-kind touches throughout the property.
The airy interiors complement the home’s connection to nature, while the large windows blur the lines between indoor and outdoor, making for a true wooded retreat.
