This ensemble of buildings includes a one-bedroom house, and a combined guesthouse and garage located on a densely wooded site in Red Rock, NY. A 200-foot long masonry retaining wall follows the contour of the steep topography and directs the entry to the site, and establishes a new plateau for the house, guesthouse, and garden.
The buildings engage the site in different ways. The guesthouse clings to the wall and overlooks the level garden terrace, while the main house projects out from the landform and opens up to the forest treetops.
