Koxvold Residence

This weekend house in the Catskills for a transplanted Norwegian video producer and photographer embraces the contradictions of Norway’s “byggeskikk” vernacular building tradition. The owner's weekday world of Manhattan contemporary art and design collides with weekend upstate tomfoolery involving guns and motorcycles. 

The house offers different massing from different approaches and responds to the landscape in a similarly varied fashion. Decks provide staging for outdoor photo shoots, while apertures frame views of the surrounding hills or for watching laps on the motocross track.
