Launching this week on DESIGNTV is Natural Habitat, a new series from Metropolis that gives insider tours of some of the most beautiful and sustainable homes in the United States. In honor of the launch, we’re thrilled to share their pilot episode filmed in Cold Spring, New York. The video explores the home of Evelyn Carr-White, who enlisted the expertise of River Architects to renovate their original log cabin by modifying the existing structure and expanding it for modern day family life. Following the five Passive House design principles, the designers share how they seamlessly blend modern design with their commitment to preserving the natural environment.
