Situated in the Hudson River Valley (two hours north of New York City), the Copper House – designed by Della Valle Bernheimer – takes its name directly from the materials employed.

Clad in copper, the Copper House will age and reflect time through changes to the facade. Inside, three bedrooms mingle with public spaces, all tied together through a magnificent 30-foot wide and 8-foot tall bookshelf. The master bedroom takes the second floor, while all other rooms are located on the ground floor.

While the home may appear to lack windows, skylights are strategically placed to allow a flow of light throughout the space.
