The House Around the Rock is designed and built by John Carson, a New York City builder and real estate developer. The two-level glass-and-copper house in Margaretville, N.Y. is airy, open, and indeed a collaboration with nature.

Between the master bath and a hallway, Mr. Carson and Ms. Slowik created a three-foot-square courtyard open to the sky from which they can watch the snow and rain. New York City subway grating is used as a bridge from the second-level dining room to the living room and an outdoor deck.

Measuring 8 feet high, 15 feet wide, 22 feet deep, the 250-ton bluestone boulder dominates the living space.

“There’s just something inviting about being able to rub against nature in your living room,” said Mr. Carson
