Modern Residence Design in New York by Thomas Phifer and Partners

The original hunting Fishers Island Home was designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners and is located in New York. Right here is usually a poetic description from the architects: “Just behind the copse stands a delicately transparent pavilion. Its light-filtering trellis-a horizontal tracery of slender aluminum rods extending the roof plane-aligns using the canopy of trees in advance of it. Woven into the landscape, this is an architecture of subtlety, a precisely grounded however quasi-weightless structure, an ethereal rectangle, planted involving two existing woods.Meanwhile, the entry axis penetrates the pavilion’s uncomplicated 4,600-square-foot volume, notching into its far side and emerging as a prolonged, miraculously shallow reflecting pool, incising the lawn using a silvery film, its distant edge dissolving optically in to the Sound. Additional than a one-bedroom retreat for a former museum director and his wife, this really is also a location of extraordinary 20th century paintings, sculptures, and glassware-much of it conveying a sense of buoyancy or levitation that echoes the pavilion’s lightness.”
