100 Great Spaces - Part 2

Digging deep into the hillside, architect Peter L. Gluck built an innovative trilevel house for a young family near Austin, Texas. The residence has a “buried” first floor; a glass-enclosed “free space” above; and a top floor that “floats” amid the oaks. “Modernism is about changing use, complexity, surprise and movement,” explains the architect, who designed a sculptural central stair—“made with a ribbon of steel”—which links all three levels of the house.
