Fitzpatrick-Wright Residence
New York

Description: The Fitzpatrick Wright House is located in Chenango County New York. The existing house, an asymmetric wood structure built in the 1970's, consists of two volumes: a pentagon and a hexagon.

Samuel Anderson Architects designed two additions to the original structure. The first consists of three levels, which include a garage, a living room, and painting/print making studio. This addition is connected to the existing by a concise volume that contains the stairs and library. The second addition is a master bedroom, with a pottery studio below. The multiplicity of volumes breaks up the scale. The structure is unified by a deck that runs along its north side, overlooking the stunning valley view below.
