House for a Steel Fabricator

The house occupies a promontory on a 30-acre site, overlooking the Taconic foothills. Steel structural members were used to maximize areas of south facing glazing and to provide unobstructed interior space. The 24’ high living space opens to the view—adjacent spaces, including the interior pool, inflect towards this room. A suspended steel stair rises along the double-height space to the bedrooms above. Radiant flooring, solar power, and geothermal ease the energy requirements in this remote location. 2003-
