Framed in a daring display of oak and steel, The Lodge is a modern-day fortress tucked away in the woods of Bucks County, PA. Perched on a ledge overlooking the Paunnacussing Creek, The Lodge was a new construction project designed to take full advantage of its site and privacy. Project team leaders, Patrick Pastella and Kanitha Burns of PASTELLA / BURNS (the luxury design division of their firm Alpha Genesis) sought to create a home that blends old world with new. The Lodge was designed to integrate the traditional Quaker meeting house’s long horizontal exterior proportions with uncompromisingly modern interiors. A distinctive feature of The Lodge is the use of steel and reclaimed oak throughout the interior. This bold and masculine aesthetic was deliberately executed and has become a popular topic of discussion in the Bucks County real estate community. The Lodge was awarded the 2020 AIA Award of Excellence in Bucks County for design and execution. The designers, architects and contractors blurred the boundaries between inside and outside to create an expansive indoor/outdoor living and entertainment space. The main residence consists of 5,100 square feet of interior space with an additional 1,200 square feet of multi-purpose living area. With numerous French doors covering all 4 sides of the building, the home provides a seamless connection to the surrounding nature. The ‘perimeter’ hallway design directs foot traffic to the outside edges of each room on the main floor to further facilitate entertainment by allowing intimate use of each room without disruption as other guests move from one room to the next. The Lodge is stately. The Lodge is sexy. To the core, this home is a country-side retreat fit for the decerning client seeking an escape from the rigors of daily life.
