Wood and glass house
Located in United States, Salt Point House was designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners is a private home that surrounded by a great landscape in New York's Hudson Valley. According to the architects in the most basic terms, the 2,200-square-foot house is a wood-framed, stained cedar box punctured with skylights and lined in maple plywood with glazing on its short sides and a perforated corrugated-stainless-steel skin on its long sides. Meeting the sunlight Salt Point house seems to become weightless as a mirage dissolving into the surrounding forested landscape. The corrugated and perforated stainless steel that covers the long sides of the house reflects and filters the view of the landscape.

It faces Avandaro Lake and the protected forest area of Cerro Gordo. The weather and climatic conditions in this area are very complex. Its main feature is maximal integration with the surrounding nature and the area in which it is situated.
