ESP HOUSE: 
Eat-Sleep-Play House

Martin / Baxi Architects

Designed for a hilly site in Dutchess County, New York, this weekend house is dedicated to everything except work. It lifts off a grassy plateau to slide over the crest of an adjacent rocky outcropping. Entry is from below through a double-height, skylit stairwell/vortex carved out of a solid core. On the lower level the core contains a guest bedroom plus utilities; above, it contains the kitchen and two bathrooms. The remainder of the house—an open living/dining area plus two bedrooms—is enclosed on the upper level by one-way mirrored glass with a horizontal band of transparent operable windows. The entire structure is balanced between the core and two CNC-milled, built-up plywood X-braces at the far end, behind which the upper level opens onto a terrace atop the rocky crest.
