The Dutchess County Guest House by Allied Works Architecture
with landscape design by Michael Van Valkenburgh
is located, unsurprisingly, in Dutchess County, New York, approximately 80 miles north of New York City. The house's steel frame extends beyond the main structure to outline exterior spaces. "The frame holds you to that place—it begins making boundaries, it gathers you in, it affords a scale of rhythm and volume," architect Brad Cloepfil says in the book.
