S3 Architecture today revealed an innovative new creative residential collaboration in the high-end real estate market with British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin. S3 Architecture has worked closely with Aston Martin Design to imagine and design an innovative residential compound in New York’sHudson Valley, Sylvan Rock.
Exclusively listed with Corcoran Country Living, Sylvan Rock is a modernist estate nestled in a magnificent 55-acre wooded plot, located just two hours from Manhattan. The compound will set new standards for a rural retreat, blending craft, health and wellness, multi-functional “pods” and sustainability with the true luxury of space, privacy, and self-contained living.
“The Sylvan Rock estate offers a reimagined modern lifestyle,” says S3 Architecture partner Doug Maxwell. “At the core of the vision is a strong connection to nature, wellness, flexible use spaces and accommodation for extended stay guests.” Reached via a winding 2000-foot driveway that makes its way through the contours, historic rock walls and ridges of the landscape, Sylvan Rock rises like the dramatic natural geological rock formation – its namesake.
“When designing, we always let the land speak first and respond to it,” says S3 Architecture partner and Registered Architect Christopher Dierig. “The roofline mimics the jagged edges of the rock ledge reaching down into the earth, as if the home is born of and launching from the landscape. The resulting design blends our modernist aesthetic with the privacy and context of the rural location to create a unique luxury experience.”
In collaboration with the Aston Martin Design team, Sylvan Rock is visually striking from 360 degrees. The exterior is defined by dramatic floor-to-ceiling glazing and blackened cedar façade with cantilevered owners’ suite, set beneath a unique folded panel roof structure. The entrance from the lower level lair within the rock formation arrives into an automotive gallery garage, lounge, executive office suite – and alongside a sommelier’s dream bespoke wine cellar, showcasing Aston Martin’s signature cross-hatched lattice design. In total, the estate offers 8,430 square feet of accommodation.
