Spencertown Residence Thomas Phifer and Partners

This 2,900-square-foot residence designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners is situated on a rolling meadow and commands dramatic views of an agricultural valley and the distant Catskills in rural upstate New York. The home's primary organizational element is a six-foot-high concrete wall that retains the earth on the uphill side and defines a large entry court in the middle. The entry and living spaces are open to views and arranged in a linear fashion along the downhill side of the wall under a gently vaulted, winglike roof. Windows and doors are oriented to maximize cross ventilation, eliminating the need for air-conditioning. Banking the entire structure into the hillside created additional energy savings.
