R5 Rosamund Young, Rosamund A. Young Architect, Scarsdale

Rosamund Young is a world traveler, starting with her childhood in South Africa, where she also earned her Masters in Architecture at the University of Cape Town. Her personal library of images from her globetrotting informs her design, as do her eight years working with her mentor, the world-famous architect Robert A. M. Stern—the man who named postmodernism and then redefined it—in Manhattan. Postmodernism is architectural poetry; it’s the search for meaning and feeling in the choice of shapes, details, techniques, and references.

Yet Young’s passion is American homes and “all the styles that are evident in the American tradition.” At the start of any project, she’s inspired by “the immediate context,” meaning the surrounding geography, the neighborhood and its architecture, “whatever tells the story,” and from the clients’ “own vision, their own style and their own dreams.”

The House: The clients for the featured Scarsdale home were looking for a “timeless home” with “clean, transitional lines.” The cabinetry is simple, although the detailing is traditional. The house is “a country manor house that happens to made out of stone and shingle.”
