Location: Wallkill, NY
In early 2016, Mapos was asked to help concept and design a new retreat and event space in the Hudson Valley, 2 hours North of New York City. The site was a 5-acre abandoned nursery with several greenhouses, warehouses, agricultural sheds, and a two-level house. The structures were all in poor condition and completely overrun by vegetation. The limited budget dictated a strategic and creative reuse of the existing structures which supported the client’s request for an authentic rural retreat that would be attractive to New York City customers.
