This stunning architectural masterpiece is a glass house designed by Audrey Matlock Architects, perched hillside in the Catskill Mountains of West Shokan, New York. This fascinating mountain home is comprised almost entirely of floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing its inhabitants not only views to the surrounding landscape, but enabling a seamless connection between indoors and out. The interior layout is comprised of 3,700 square feet of living space, offering a monochromatic interior color scheme comprised of black, gray and white. A series of varying shaped rooms and sections offers visual interest and while the home seems divided, light still penetrates the space from every direction, reflecting off the surfaces. The architect applies right angles to merge almost every corner of the home, and while one may surmise that this aesthetic would be austere, it is not. The soft contemporary furnishings, the remarkable beauty of the surrounding site, and the negative edge swimming pool that connects the residence to the landscape makes this property more of an extension to its surroundings, rather than a collect of sharp angles.
