Marble House

Named after its exterior facade, the Marble House is a modern Taj Mahal. Although not made entirely of the natural stone, the home's sculpted form is clad in large marble tiles. The material flows into the interior, lining the double-height living area and foyer. Light wood tones provide a warm contrast with the parquet floor, folded walls, and floating staircase. A rear glazed wall breaks up the monolithic structure, opening up to a lush courtyard filled with rain trees, bamboo, and a large reflecting pool.

  • Berkshire House

    Resting on a rocky ledge in rural Massachusetts, the Berkshire House puts a loft apartment in amongst the trees. The site's biggest obstacle became the home's main feature, turning an existing boulder into the foundation — a choice that raised the focus from the forest floor to the treetops. This view is highlighted in the main living area thanks to full-height windows, encasing the room on three sides. These windows not only saturate the interior in the surrounding nature but also expands the modest interior out into its forest setting by way of a cantilevered deck.

  • Napa Barn

    Set on a small Northern California vineyard, this Napa Barn is a multi-use pavilion disguised as an agrarian shelter. The two-story structure is built using low-maintenance materials like cedar cladding, coated steel, and local native stone, and angled in a V-shape to form a sheltered courtyard. Large openings provide airflow and access to the double-height main room and adjoining the kitchen, lit by a dramatic skylight shaft. The garage area doubles as a basketball court with stainless steel inlaid lines, and above the downstairs bedrooms lies a sleeping porch that overlooks the vineyard and meadows of wildflowers and grasses.
