US studio GRT Architects has completed this black house with huge triangular windows in New York’s Dutchess County, which has the layout of an open-plan studio.
The project in Dutchess County, which is just under two hours drive from New York City, was created for a couple thinking about permanently moving out of Manhattan.
美國工作室GRT Architects在紐約的荷蘭郡（Dutchess County）建造了這座帶有巨大三角窗的黑房子，其佈局為開放式工作室。
While the move was not confirmed they tasked Brooklyn-based GRT Architects to create a bolthole on a 24-acre (9.7-hectare) plot to accommodate their children and grandchildren.
Dutchess County Studio is composed of three rectangular volumes arranged in a pinwheel to overlap one another. Textured black brickwork walls are slanted at the top to meet with triangular clerestory windows.
Dutchess County Studio由三個矩形體積組成，三個矩形體積排列在風車中，彼此重疊。 帶紋理的黑色磚牆在頂部傾斜，與三角形的天窗相接。
“Each mass has an identical roof atop a beak-like clerestory window but asymmetry was introduced in response to the site,” GRT Architects said.
The roof of the house is clad in natural cedar with copper trim, chosen to complement the brickwork.
“Outside, the studio is clad in textured black brick, a material that plays optical tricks depending on lighting, sometimes flattening the complex mass into a single plane,” the studio explained. “The roof is clad in natural cedar shakes with copper trim intended to add a warmer aspect to the design.”
Inside, three exposed black ceiling beams mark the meeting of the three volumes above the kitchen area – this forms the central space in the project, which is designed to have an open-plan layout like a studio apartment.
“The masses meet at a centre point, marked by the pinwheel intersection of three steel beams but the interior is conceived as three subtly implied rooms, each oriented each to a different view,” it added.
Steps lead down to the third volume, which is intended to be occupied by a bedroom, and is located on a lower level due to the slope of the sight. This block has a huge window with views outside. The other two wings are occupied by the lounge – with a murphy bed for guests – and a small bathroom.
台階向下延伸到第三體積，該體積打算由一間臥室佔據，並且由於視線的傾斜而位於較低的高度。 這個街區有一個巨大的窗戶，可以欣賞外面的景色。 其他兩個翼被休息室佔據-配有一張墨菲床供客人使用-以及一間小浴室。
Because the residence has an open floor plan, the studio has used pale wood cabinets to divide the kitchen area from the sunken bedroom, and offer privacy. A simple material palette of white-painted walls, built-in pale wood furniture topped with custom terazzo made by Kaza Concrete, and concrete flooring runs throughout.
由於該住宅擁有開放式平面圖，因此工作室使用了淺色木製櫥櫃將廚房區域與沈沒的臥室分隔開來，並提供了私密性。 簡單的白色牆面材料調色板，內置的淺色木製家具，配以Kaza Concrete定制的特雷佐（Teazzo）地板以及貫穿各處的混凝土地板。
According to the studio, the concrete slab is radiant and forms part of an environmentally friendly approach to heating and cooling the house without fossil fuels. Other facilities include the “clean burning” Flores 8 stove by Buntfires, which has reduced toxic emissions.
根據工作室的說法，混凝土板是輻射性的，是不使用化石燃料加熱和冷卻房屋的環保方法的一部分。 其他設施包括Buntfires的“清潔燃燒” Flores 8爐灶，減少了有毒物質的排放。
The bathroom is the only space separated by walls. Pink-tinted Moroccan Tadelakt plaster covers the walls inside and is complemented by a reddish sink, golden details and warm woods.
Stone steps lead down from the house at the top of the slope to a swimming pool, which GRT Architects created as part of a masterplan for the site. The studio is also planning to complete a dock and workshop.
石頭台階從斜坡頂部的房子一直延伸到游泳池，GRT Architects創建了游泳池，作為場地總體規劃的一部分。 該工作室還計劃完成一個碼頭和一個工作室。
GRT Architects was founded by Tal Schori and Rustam-Marc Mehta in Brooklyn, New York in 2014. The studio’s other projects in New York State include Manhattan’s Bourke Street Bakery, the renovation of an Upstate mid-century house and an office with millennial-pink kitchen and dark “nap room”.
