Mahamudra Hertimage | Cragsmoor, New York

Pouder Design worked to prepare a long-term Master Plan for the development of a Buddhist hermitage on a 91-acre site in the Hamlet of Cragsmoor, New York. Located near the Shawangunk Ridge State Forest, the Master Plan addresses the need for habitat preservation on the site. The Master Plan balances the needs of the Center with the ecological and environmental needs of the site. The site is coordinated to allow for scenic vistas and engagement with the local ecology. Native plantings allow the center to blend into its surroundings.
