Golf House

Defined by three concrete boxes stacked atop one another, the Golf House provides a striking contrast with the Buenos Aires course on which it sits. The middle floor is an open space that contains the kitchen, dining, and living areas, with an open space below the latter serving as a covered carport. The bottom floor sits perpendicular to the middle, and houses guest bedrooms and baths, while the master suite sits along the same axis at the top of the structure to maximize the views. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper levels let in plenty of light, and provide access to the multiple decks that provide ample outdoor living space.

  • Woodland Cabin

    Set beside a lake in rural Belgium, the Woodland Cabin is a small, inexpensive getaway. Self-built on a budget under $40,000, it measures 35 square meters, with a concrete strip foundation, suspended wooden floor, and beams and siding that come from the architect's father, who milled them from trees sourced in the surrounding woods. Heat comes from a wood burning stove, and its waterside setting serves as an ideal backdrop for work, gatherings, or just long, relaxing naps.

  • Chicken Point Cabin

    The name sounds like something out of The Dukes of Hazzard, but make no mistake: there's nothing kitschy about Chicken Point Cabin. Created by the minimalist wizards at Olson Kundig, this rectangular getaway employs a huge hand-cranked 20' x 30' window wall to open the living space to the lake in Northern Idaho on which it sits. The home is approach both from the water and the road, with a 19-foot steel door offering access on the forest side. Inside, there's a master suite in the plywood loft above the main living area, extra bedrooms on either side, and exposed blocks, beams, and supports that give the space a industrial feel that contrasts with the surrounding wilderness.
