Puzzles are a favorite pastime of New York–based designer Sharon Davis. “I like to work on them with my younger daughter,” she says. “We always have one going when we’re together.” Work and recreation seamlessly merge in Davis’s sleek, elegantly compact vacation house in upstate New York, itself the result of a Tetris-style challenge she gave herself. “Was it possible, I thought, to build a 900-square-foot house that felt much bigger?”
