Empire State of Modern: 7 Upstate New York Houses

Where does Upstate New York begin? Ask a New York City dweller and they are likely to tell you that "Upstate" means anything north of the Cross-Westchester Expressway. Wherever its southern boundary lies, there is plenty of Upstate New York to go around and, as it turns out, plenty of noteworthy residential architecture, too. Here, from Dwell's archives, are some of our favorite Empire State houses.

Kathleen Triem quit her job at a Manhattan design firm in July 1996 and moved with the man in her life, Peter Franck, to Omi, a small town in New York's Hudson Valley. They built a trapezoidal structure, nicknamed the Copper House, which sits on a hillside overlooking the Catskill Mountains. From a distance, it draws to mind the monolithic figures lining the shores of Easter Island. Photo by Barbel Miebach.
