Y – House

Steven Holl - construction date 1997 - 1999

" On a hilltop site in a remote section of the Catskill Mountains, the "Y" House ascends the hill, splitting to form two arms, ending in balconies. The "Y" cuts a slice of sky and draws the sun into the heart of the house. Like a found forked stick, the Y makes a primitive mark on a vast site. The geometry contains a sectional flip of public/private and day/night with bedrooms below and living above.
