Story by ABBY LUBY AWA K E N I N G T H E S E N S E S AT Story by ABBY LUBY The aesthetically pleasing showplace and home appeals to everyone's inner artist seeking quiet contemplation that invites rich inspiration. The 15-plus acre Garrison property was conceived as an organic whole, seamlessly integrating a myr- iad of fanciful gardens outside to every space on the inside. This bi-sectional 7,500 square-foot residence is steeped in architectural history. The older struc- ture, built in 1975, is referred to as the white house and the newer structure, built in 1995, is the red house. Both were built by renowned ar- chitect/designer, Paul Mayén (1916-2000) and his partner Edgar Kaufman Jr. (1910-1989). Mayén is known for designing the visitor center pavilion at Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Waters, which Kaufman inherited from his parents before it was open to the public. Water Run's meandering brooks, curling ed- dies, splashing waterfalls and fountains resonate in the rounded glass contours and surfaces bathed in translucent light. The white house was designed expressly to showcase and celebrate art, envisioned as a multi three-dimensional can- vas if you will, to highlight painting, sculpture, or other artifacts. A large rectangular central room anchors two, wide half-oval rooms: one side is purely an exhibit space, the other is less for dis- play and more a library/study. The center living room has built-in couches; a small kitchen is sep- arated by a partial wall and two small bedrooms shoulder each corner. Subdued grays and off-whites are throughout.
