Lachance House

Mixing rustic materials and modern design, the Lachance House reimagines the local architecture of Quebec's Eastern Townships. The exterior's contemporary form is clad in vertical wood planks, left unfinished to weather overtime like the native farm building of the area. This theme continues into the interior with the use of a polish field stone floor. The ground level — made up of an open kitchen, dining, and living area — is wrapped in sliding glass doors to frame in scenes lakeside landscape. These doors also open out to a covered terrace where views of the surrounding mountains can be admired.

  • Sea Bright House

    Steps away from the beach on the Jersey Shore, the Sea Bright House uses its offset layout to capture the best ocean views. The structure itself is made from a series of staggered cubes, separating the home into different areas — private, shared, and passage. Due to zoning constraints, the main living area sits above the first floor bedrooms, allowing for the water to be seen through the upper level's double-height windows. This glazing also opens out to one of three outdoor terraces created by the home's abstract form, each at varying heights with their own unique views of the costal landscape.

  • Wimbledon House

    First built in 1968, the Wimbledon House is a complete restoration of London's iconic 22 Parkside. The single-story building was first designed by architect Richard Rogers and his wife. A practitioner of modernist design, the home is comprised of two simple forms made mostly of colorful steel and floor-to-ceiling glazing. In 2015, the home was gifted to the Harvard Graduate School of Design where it received a two-year renovation. While much of the structures original heritage remained intact, the views from the glass facade have changed thanks to a an extensive re-design of the surrounding garden.
