The Dell House

Built on a site with slopes on every side, The Dell House uses a cross-like formation to help divide public areas from private. On the ground level, you'll find the kitchen, dining room, living area, and entrance, while upstairs you find four bedrooms, with a private balcony off the master. The different areas are further defined by their exterior coverings, with a mix of brick, timber, and slate shingles blending harmoniously with the surrounding woods.

  • Rocksplit House

    Overlooking the valley of Poisses on the Greek island of Kea, the Rocksplit House uses local materials and traditional building methods to marry with its mountainous landscape. The home is comprised of three volumes, all clad in a native stone. Each one is split up by function — a main living area, sleeping quarters, and a circulation tower. The interior maintains the exterior's neutral affair with white washed wood, gray stone, and pale stucco. Covered verandas flank the central structure, acting as a refuge from the harsh Mediterranean climate while taking in the seaside views.

  • Loctudy House

    Built for a photographer for both work and leisure, the Loctudy House combines a summer retreat and a studio in one sleek package. The home is made up of two structures — one housing the main living area and one used solely as a studio. Bedrooms are lofted above the ground to maximize space for communal areas. The smooth, monochromatic form is broken up by a series of seemingly sporadic, yet thoughtfully placed windows, allowing for light to flow in throughout the entire day while also allowing for views of the surrounding farmland.
