Walsh House

Located in Telluride's historic district, the Walsh House offers the chance to own John Pawson's first U.S. commission. The exterior pays homage to the area's mining heritage with its metal roof, weathered timber siding, and fieldstone facade, while the interior is a prime example of the architect's signature minimal style. The four bedroom structure combines concrete, marble, and a bright white pallet to offset the rugged mountain landscape, brought in through numerous windows and skylights. A second story, consisting of an open living area, expands out to a private deck, affording unspoiled views of Colorado's San Juan Mountains.

  • Backyard Room

    Make more use of your home's lot with a Backyard Room. Ranging in size from just over 5 to nearly 23 square meters, they can be configured as offices, pool houses, studios, or even full-featured dwellings. Each one is made primarily using wood from renewable, certified sources, and has other earth-friendly features like high-insulation floors, walls, and roofs, optional solar panels, and optional garden roofs. Best of all, they typically don't require a permit, can be designed and built in just six weeks, and can be installed in under a week. The bad news? If you live outside of Australia, you're probably out of luck.

  • Invisible House

    Perched on a ridge in Australia's Blue Mountains, the Invisible House uses generous amounts of glazing to take advantage of its elevated setting. The concrete, glass, and steel exterior is protected by a massive cantilever roof that serves as both a thermal device and dam, reflecting sunlight off the water, lending to the home's covert namesake. Internally, the space maintains a palette of concrete, Mudgee stack stone, brass, and copper, while each of the four bedrooms are lined in plywood. Thanks to expansive openings in the east-facing walls, the Megalong Valley is on full display from nearly every inch of the interior.
