‘Hygge’: How to design an old-school home in a modern world

A few years ago, I visited a beautiful, modern, but rustic cabin on the banks of the Hudson River, a cabin built by architect John Darnell.

It was one of the few places in New York City where I could take in the city’s industrial and urban fabric without getting lost in the traffic.

At a glance, the home was like a dream.

It’s a three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath, five-bath, three-and–a-quarter-bath townhouse, which has been turned into a contemporary community, the perfect combination of modern and rustic.

This week, I was able to visit the same place for the first time, and I’ve learned that Darnill’s cabin was built by the same architect who was responsible for the design of a home I visited in the 1940s. 

 The interior of the cabin, which is owned by the Darnells, is an amalgam of two decades of architectural history.

A few of the original plans are visible, as are the wood planks that form the foundation of the structure. 

The cabin was originally built in the 1920s and 1940s by the local architect, John Dornell, and his wife, Mary, and was later purchased by the family of the late, great architect John A. Brougham.

John Dernell was the grandson of one of New York’s greatest architects, James Darnett, and he’s widely considered to be one of America’s greatest builders.

John A Broughams, an architectural historian and author, says that Dernells work was “a mix of industrial and commercial in the same building.” 

“I always tell people I love the Broughs,” John A says.

“I always call them the Burdens.”

 This is an updated version of a story published in November 2017. 

In the 1940’s, when the Boughs built their cabin, it was a very different world than it is today.

In this story, John A describes the design process that led to his cabin’s creation:  It was an opportunity to design a house that could withstand the weather and to provide an environment that was suitable for the family.

It wasn’t a house designed for a large family.

I designed a home that would accommodate five people, a standard size for the period, and could also be made into a small home.

The house was not intended for anyone but for a family.

The original plans called for a three bedroom, one and a half bath, four bathroom, two and a quarter bath, and two and half baths.

The cabin was designed to accommodate two adults, a couple, and a child.

This version, which was designed by architect Darnels wife, Daphne, had a larger number of bedrooms, and it was designed with an additional three bedrooms, a larger bathroom, and three bathrooms. 

This original cabin was later converted into a home and now is being renovated for a community that includes a new church, a new playground, a library, and several other amenities.

The new community includes a church, community garden, an outdoor play area, and the Dernels’ original home. 

“We really have no plans for this,” Darnes granddaughter Mary said.

“It’s just a lovely little place.” 

The new building is the home of the new family and the community.

It will include a church and a library. 

As a result of this change in ownership, the cabin is now a community asset.

Darnedels grandson John says that the new house will have many of the amenities and conveniences that the old home has.

 “They’re going to have a community garden,” he said.

“There’s going to be an outdoor area and they’re going a couple of miles away to get a nice park for the kids.”

“The kids are going to love it,” Daphn says.

“They’ve never been able to go anywhere in this cabin before.”

The family is now working to make the cabin available for sale, with plans to build a new home nearby.

There are no plans to move the Dornells to another location in the future.

Darnell’s original plans for the cabin were for it to serve as a summer retreat for the Dannells’ son, Harry, who was born in 1941.

The family’s daughter, Ruth, says she would love to see her father’s design come to fruition.

“I think it would be great if he did something like this,” she said.

“The cabin would be perfect for a retreat, so it would just be like a little cottage,” she continued.

“And there would be an outside, so you would get out and see New York and see the world.

It would be just a
