September 24, 2014 Poughkeepsie Journal Article — Architect Daniel Contelmo recently won a citation award from the state chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The winning project was a 5,500-square-foot carriage house constructed in Dutchess County.
The timber frame structure was fastened only with oak pegs, reminiscent of the method used for historical barns. Inspiration for the carriage house's curving stone walls came from buildings on the Franklin D. Roosevelt estate in Hyde Park. Inside, the main space is dedicated to automobiles, viewed from above from a custom steel catwalk, while an attached wing features a bar, library and sitting area.
