Texas Bunkhouse

Built as a getaway for a writer/director and his friends and family, this Texas Bunkhouse bends around the trees that dominated its plot, roughly 30 miles from Austin. As the trees dictated the home's shape, so too did they influence its vertically-oriented structure, with the full-length screened porch providing uninhibited views of the surrounding foliage. Inside there are open cots and a kitchen, as well as a single enclosed bedroom, two bathrooms, and an outdoor shower. The building is clad in multi-color stained cedar to blend into the landscape while lending a brick-like randomness, and the house sits on concrete piers above a dry creek bed, just steps from a nearby swimming pool.

  • 360 House

    Inspired by a couple's love for their canine companions, the 360 House allows for undisrupted views of their Alaskan malamute pups. The circular villa is supported by a continuous glazed wall, providing constant visuals on the outdoors and the dogs. An overhang runs around the entirety of the exterior, lending shelter from both the rain and the sun. At the front of the home, the bedroom and kitchen are sunken below the garden for eye-to-eye interaction with their exterior roommates, while also creating a private barrier between the interior and the adjacent street.

  • High House

    Hovering above a Quebec hillside, the High House uses a foundation of stilts to adapt to its snowy terrain. The gabled structure is elevated off the ground to protect the first level from the frigid elements, while also creating a protected outdoor area. Its clean lines are clad in a white concrete paneling and a corrugated steel roof to blend into the winter landscape, but also creates a striking contrast with its green backdrop in the summer months. The raised design also lifts the focus above the surrounding tree line, allowing for views of the Mont Saint Anne from the main living area.
