Designed by Bates Masi Architects, Noyack Creek House became a study in architectural theatre: a series of spaces in a carefully scripted sequence that subtly reflects his professional life. The path begins at the front door where perforated privacy screens slide apart like a curtain, revealing the loft-like living and dining spaces. Beneath the stair, hidden backstage for maximum privacy, the guest room shares the water view through a nearly hidden sliding door. The master bedroom is connected to the bath by a bridge overlooking the public spaces below which are lit by the glazed stair wall. Lined with a guardrail of stainless steel cables recalling a fly loft and catwalk, the path culminates in the master bedroom with its wall of glazing overlooking the water. The siding system is manipulated for varying degrees of privacy as well.
