  • Karuna Class + Tour

    Portland | Dates: 25 – 26 Jul, 2014

The home earned AIA Portland’s 2030 Design Award last year, and has reached Net Zero energy usage due to onsite solar panels.

    Join architect Peter Pennoyer and architectural historian Anne Walker, authors of the new book New York Transformed: The Architecture of Cross & Cross, for a look at two of the early 1900s’ most important, but largely forgotten architects. Brothers John and EliotCross counted the country’s richest and most influential figures among their clients, yet they tended to gravitate toward an unpretentious luxury—a polite and historically embedded expression of their wealth. They designed several magnificent Colonial Revivalhouses in New York as well as country houses in fashionable areas such as Long Island’s North Shore and East End, Greenwich, Connecticut, and Far Hills, New Jersey. Most notably, they designed J. Watson and Electra Havemeyer Webb’s Brick House in Shelburne, VT (now part of the Shelburne Museum), Chestertown House in Southampton for H. F. du Pont (founder of the Winterthur Museum) and the childhood home of famed decorator Sister Parish in Far Hills, NJ. Pennoyer and Walker will share gorgeous photos of these homes and insight into the people who lived there and the influences the Cross brothers’ used while designing each property.
