Westchester Home 2012 Design Awards - Best Bath

“This bathroom is flooded with natural light and warmth, but still evokes a modern sensibility with the clean lines and consistent finishes. The warm wood tones are inviting and peaceful, as is the window seat that wraps around the step up into the bathroom.”

Bedford Magazine -

"Every time we ran into a challenge individually and wondered how we would solve it, we worked together and came up with a better solution. That’s where having a great architect and a great builder made this a pleasure.”

“Mr. Mackin and Mr. Platt both approached the library in such an inventive manner. The ceiling is unexpected (and brilliant), and the furnishings are current and classic at the same time.”

Architectural Digest - “Dances with History” - July 2010

“We were constantly balancing the 1908 architectural-historical perspective with the more informal way people like to live now.” - Ralph Mackin

Bath & Kitchen Pro -

“People want to feel like they are entering a resort where they would be pampered. There’s more room and it’s spacious.”

“Transitional design takes the stuffiness out of traditional style and the coldness out of hard-edged contemporary style and creates an energetic and vibrant feeling.”

Adirondack Living - “Architect Blends Camp Styles with Modern Aesthetic” - Winter 2007

“They started with the idea of a more contemporary residence, but we helped them move in a better direction. An open contemporary floor plan, with traditionally influenced detailing. Our job is to interpret.” - Ralph Mackin

The HOME Monthly - “South Salem Renovation” - October 2007

“Ralph just got it. He has this awesome sense of taste, space and really understands what our needs were, and that we also wanted to keep the integrity of the house...I’m really finicky about how things work, and I have a strong sense of design – we both do – and Ralph knew how to work with us and to give us everything we wanted, and more than we expected.”

Westchester Home & Garden - “Guest House with a Mission” - Summer 2007

“When [the client] called on architect Ralph Mackin to build a carriage house near the pool that sits on their four-acre Bedford property, they wanted their stand-alone addition to reflect their passion for Craftsman style, famous for its emphasis on simplicity, craftsmanship, sparse ornamentation, and the use of high-end materials. “This artistic movement’s focus is on quality materials and a wealth of understated details,” Mackin says. “The whole point here was to show off the work of the artisans—carpenters, metal workers, and masons—that the contractor [Bill Hoadley of H & Y Construction in Brookfield, Connecticut] hired to create the design.”
