The Sleeve House

Here is a rare opportunity to own a truly unique and forward-looking home designed by noted architect and scholar Adam Dayem. Located in the Hudson Valley town of Taghkanic, this under-construction, 2-BR/2-BA, 2,500 sf, all-season weekend home is sited on 15 acres of open, rolling meadows, a setting that affords privacy, as well as dramatic valley and mountain views. As enigmatic as it is practical, the structure has been conceived diagrammatically as two intersecting volumes: accented by raw concrete floor and walls, a smaller volume containing private spaces (bedrooms, bathrooms, office) has been sleeved into a larger one containing public spaces (intimate spaces for cooking, dining, and living, a tall, thin vertical slice for circulation, and a dramatic entry gallery). The sustainably-sourced Accoya wood skin, charred by a Japanese finishing technique called “shou sugi ban,” gives the house a rough, weathered texture, a contemporary reinterpretation of the exteriors of old barns in the Hudson Valley. Boards of varying thickness and depth are placed alternately flat and on-end to give the façade depth and pattern. Both ends of the home feature glass walls for maximal views of the surrounding countryside. The house has all of the accoutrements of a truly contemporary home, including a roof-top deck with water and electric service. Scheduled to be completed late spring 2017, immediate showings are available. Photos of the construction process can be seen on the architect’s page here. EXCLUSIVE
