2007 Olnick Spanu House, NY

Gilding the lily

The place is of profound tranquility where after a day of rain and fog an intense light reflects in the stilled mirror of the majestic Hudson RiverĀ“s deep waters. In this impressive place, we establish a plane, a platform that underlines the landscape before us, seeking to enhance it. A large long box is thus built, 122 feet long by 54 feet wide by 12 feet high, with sturdy concrete walls that accentuate its relationship to the land. The roof of this box is flat, paved in stone, travertine, so that we may use it.
