A unified system
Olana is the home of Hudson River Valley School painter Frederic Church, a New York State Historic Site. Sensitivity to the site and the architecture was paramount in this assignment. The site has a strict landscape architecture master plan designed to sustain the viewshed that Church enjoyed when he lived here. Yet, with thousands of visitors coming each year, it was critical to get them to follow the right road, park in the right place, and understand the rules. We created an elegant, unobtrusive, functional sign system.
