Architectural Projects and Details

Architectural Projects Designed by John E. Scofield

Inside of two back-to-back 'Rumford' fireplaces. 

I designed and built a group of 'cabins' for a Hollywood producer who owned land in Connecticut. This shoot for Vogue was the first design story in the USA for editor Hamish Bowles. He arrived in a white fur coat, no hat, on a very cold day. I built him a fire in the main cabin and toasted up some scones in the fire place. That cheered him up... 

On the fire screen, in the upper left corner, there is a small forged-iron screech owl. This was to commemorate the owl that once sat in a nearby apple tree during the middle of the day. Stonework by the late Anders Chase. Ironwork: Peter Catchpole.
  • See two photos with red dots in the story below.

This is an authentic
Adirondack 'Rushton'
canoe in front of the 
cabin's screened-in porch.

  • A garage / workshop with great-room and fireplace on the second floor:

Exterior stone steps take you up to a terrace and main entry to the great-room:

(air conditioning units etc.) and noise away from the buildings.
