CONWAY, MASSACHUSETTS. 2002. This 3344-sq.ft. house in rural central Massachusetts is for a practicing sculptor and a potter, and their son. The work spaces consist of two studios and a kiln house located at the lower level. The kiln house, embedded in the hill, forms a kind of fulcrum for the project and is entered off an outside passage connecting the studios that burrows into the hill. The house straddles the studios. The living room, kitchen and dining room form the middle floor, while bedrooms are on the third floor. The space of the living room bridges the ‘cut’ to the kiln house below to look up and down this axis. A bridge connects over the living room to a guest room at the east end of the second floor.
