23 Jul Five New York houses architects have built for themselves
Architects have designed these five houses for themselves in New York State to escape city life, including a Catskills home with concrete-block walls and a retreat on Shelter Island.
Camp O by Maria Milans Studio
Spanish architect Maria Milans del Bosch who is based in Manhattan designed this two-storey home in the town of Claryville in the Hudson Valley. Built into a hill, it comprises two long volumes with roofs that slant in opposite directions.
Interiors feature exposed concrete walls, large windows and wood beams, while two grey sofas by Hay surround a fireplace.
