Dutchess County Guesthouse by Allied Works Architecture

Posted By Daily Icon On May 25, 2012 @ 12:30 AM In Architecture | 2 Comments

This guesthouse was designed by Allied works for the family of an art collector in Dutchess County, New York. This commission included a residence, guesthouse and private gallery. Located on the eastern slopes of the Hudson River Valley, the site consists of rolling hills, open meadows and a dense hardwood forest. Each of the three buildings responds to a particular landscape. The images above are from the guest house. The main residence (preview below) is still under construction. The main house is situated at the head of a large meadow, providing sweeping views of the valley and mountains beyond (this is a 350 acre property by the way). The residence takes the form of an orthogonal helix sited at the intersection of three landscaped courts. These are bounded by a series of stone walls that extend into the landscape. Above, the helix is enclosed by a skin of glass panels — transparent, translucent and opaque — that mediates light and views and dissolves into the surrounding landscape.
