Artist Residence

Artist Residence
Private Location, NY – House + Studio

Located in rural, Upstate New York, the House for an Artist is conceived as the restrained composition of three elements: the main living quarters, a guesthouse/gallery and studio space. Three buildings, distinct in purpose, remain interconnected by an engawa and continuous roof structure, arranged to provide an intimate interior courtyard as a shared extension of each space. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows draw continuous views to the garden, while exterior courtyard reveals further inspire a curiosity that betrays the introverted presence of the three buildings. The large precast concrete panels double as decorative and structural elements, providing a rhythm and strength to the main building and studio, setting apart the function of these spaces against the pill-shaped, pinched roof guest house/exhibition space. In complement to the idiosyncratic voice of the artist, the House for an Artist achieves a quiet presence amidst soft curves of the surrounding natural landscape.
