MA House

Located just outside of Mexico City, the MA House was completely designed around its surrounding environment. The home's stone facade was influenced by its local availability, as well as its low-cost and maintenance-free nature. The material also makes its way into the interior, complimented by floors, ceilings, and fixtures cast from concrete. At the heart of the home, the three forms that make up the structure meet to create a pair of covered patios overlooking a large courtyard where occupants can take advantage of the area's warm climate and lush scenery. The sloping nature of these volumes pair with north and south-facing glazing, allowing for full views of the mountain landscape, while concealing neighboring houses to the east and west.

  • Tinkerbox House

    Surrounded by over 10 acres of forest in the Hudson Valley, the Tinkerbox House uses the owner's hobbies as the focus of its design. The process began with a spacious garage large enough for storing and tinkering on cars, while also housing a wine cellar and workshop for building furniture. Accessed by a two-story entryway, the open living space above is comprised of a kitchen, living room, and dining area that extends out to a covered terrace with an outdoor fireplace and grill. Externally, the rectangular form contrasts its dense wooded setting with a charred cedar cladding, created using an ancient Japanese technique called Shou sugi ban.
