"Le Corbusier was a great influence, but there are many influences and they are constantly changing. Frank Lloyd Wright was a great architect, and I could not have done my parent’s house the way that I did, without being overwhelmed by Falling Water. A Miesian brick house under a Frank Lloyd Wright roof."

Richard Meier completed this home, nestled in a natural setting, for his parents in 1965. This house, a first commission in private practice, stands on .71 acre overlooking Essex Fells Country Club golf course. Large glass walls bring the beauty of nature inside, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior, while large brick walls block the building off from the street, creating a sense of privacy. The masonry bearing walls and their large glass openings are capped with a wide parapet that enclosed a roof garden. The inset courtyard and curving brick walls which extend beyond the building corners protect and shape the views for privacy, and open the inside of the house to light and the seasons through skylights and clerestories. Sunlight and shadow inundate the interior, producing a sense of space and quietude. There are no steps to entry throughout this one level home. It is like an urban courtyard house, reflecting the owner’s wish for privacy.
