The “Y” House sits on top of a hill in the Catskills with two arms ending in balconies drawing the sun into its heart and illuminating various parts of the entire house at various times of the day. One of world renowned architect Steven Holl’s most accomplished works, the Y house makes an organic mark on a special site with gorgeous views. The geometry is a reverse of public and private, with bedrooms below and common living space above. This is classic 21st C. luminist architecture that borrows from 19th C. luminist painters to blend space & light. Time magazine called Mr. Holl as “America’s best architect” for his “buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye”. 33 acres with pond & a boat house with original art on the walls by David Novros. 3 hours from NYC & 45 min from Albany.
