The Sleeve House

This truly unique and hyper-contemporary home was designed by noted architect and scholar Adam Dayem and recently won second place (among 50 entries) in the American-Architects U.S. Building of the Year competition. The 3-BR/2.5-bath, 2,500 sq. ft. 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) 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 outside of the house a rough, weathered texture, a contemporary reinterpretation of the exteriors of old barns of 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. With all its accoutrements, including a roof-top deck, this home is perfect for the modern lifestyle. 2 hrs. from NYC. Photos of the construction process can be seen on the architect’s Instagram feed here. EXCLUSIVE
