2008: Dune House
2006: Holley House
1999: Hudson River House
hanrahan Meyers architects (hMa) design projects around themes based in the Natural realm. In 2006, hMa published ‘Designing with Light’ cataloging the firm’s researches into Natural light and architecture.
Since the firm’s inception in 1987, hMa has also featured Water as an element of their work. In that spirit, hMa is presenting four projects, beginning with Dune House, a project that is still ‘on the drawing boards’ which may be in construction by 2008; WaveLine, a multi-purpose space finished 2007 and not yet open to the general public; Holley House, a 7,000 square foot house in Garrison, New York, completed in 2006; and Hudson River House, a house designed in 1989 for clients in Nyack, New York.
In each project presented in our gallery of hMa’s ‘water-works’ - the overriding theme is the idea of designing an architectural frame that intimately connects the inhabitants of the space to water.

The project features a 550-foot long glass wall where hMa are collaborating with sound artist Michael Schumacher. The theme for the wall is 'water'. The facace will feature a dot pattern representing a new work by Michael Schumacher, based on water sounds. Schumacher is composing pieces for a new CD, to be released to coincide with the opening of hMa's building. A major feature of the new BPC Community Center will be an aquatic center including adult and children's pools.
