Ithaca Spare Guest House by Ikon.5 Architects

Located in Ithaca, New York, USA this guest house was designed by Ikon.5 Architects in 2013. The house rests on an existing pool house foundation.

Nestled across from an elegant brick main house and complemented by a steel and wood pergola, the guest house creates an intimate setting for an outdoor stone-terraced swimming pool court. The lofty, open plan house soars above the landscape, enjoying views of Lake Cayuga and the far hills beyond. With its clean white walls, black honed granite floors and minimalist appointments, the house is a contemporary counterpoint to its natural surroundings. Windows frame views to the Lake and together with the clerestory windows bathe the house in natural light throughout the day.
