Chimney House

Set between a 16th-century church and a wooden barn in the Slovenian town of Logatec, the Chimney House takes inspiration from both of its neighbors. The linear form and oiled larch boards that make the exterior facade replicate the dark weathered timber of the adjacent barn, while the unique pitch of the roof is reminiscent of the nearby chapel. At the center of the home, a wood-burning stove dominates the interior — giving the home its namesake — and also separating the common and private areas. Oiled oak floors and walls lead up to a board formed concrete ceiling connected by a glazed gap, exposing the entire interior to natural light.

  • Ustaoset Cabin

    Resting 1,066 meters above sea level, the Ustaoset Cabin takes advantage of the stunning landscapes Norway has to offer. The home takes a minimal approach to the traditional mountain cabin with clean lines and vertical pine cladding, meant to weather into its natural backdrop over time. The exterior is mimicked on the inside where light pine planks cover the ceiling, walls, and floor. Although appearing compact in size, accommodations for 13 are found between two rooms, a modular living room, and bunk lofts. The rest of the home is comprised of an open living area with an angled ceiling and full-height glazing, exposing views of the Hardangervidda mountain plateau, as well as a nearby lake and glacier.

  • Undermountain House

    Balancing on a small knoll in the Berkshires, the Undermountain House takes inspiration from the primitive architecture of the region. The extended single-story structure is clad in dark cypress planks and topped by a simple pitched roof. A stone base levels the house with a sloped hillside, allowing for the home to hover above the landscape. Between the two foundations, a rain garden made from large boulders keeps the elements off of the home by funneling water to a nearby pond. Internally, the home adopts an open floor plan, ending with a screened in porch with a fireplace that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
