At Croton Reservoir in upstate New York, the hills tumble right into the lake. Simultaneously soft and hard, rolling and jagged, the lakefront alternates green patches with craggy, rocky formations. Built into this landscape of leaf and rock and water is a house: The Gypsy Trail residence. Its ground floor, constructed of rough stone collected on site, is recessed into the hillside. Perched above the stone base is the cantilevered second floor; this box of steel, wood, and glass is twisted at an angle to procure a direct view of the lake and to capture maximum sunlight. The overruling concept was to create an intelligent structure and to design the house “from the inside out”.
