The Houseboat

Overlooking Poole Harbour, the Houseboat takes inspiration from its nautical setting. The blackened timber structure is made from two staggered volumes, resembling an upturned boat. Resting below a concrete arch, the interior is made up of a series of open levels, connected by a concrete stairway. Timber planks line the walls and ceiling to create a warm contrast to the rigid frame. A glazed west-facing wall baths the interior with light while also exposing seaward views to every room in the home.

  • In 1 House

    Part art exhibit and part architectural experiment, the In 1 House is an exploration of function and materiality. The two-story dwelling is housed in a shiny metal hanger lined with only oriented strand board. Rather than a kitchen, bedroom, or office, the interior is divided into three ambiguous spaces. Black modular furniture can be arranged to redefine each area as desired. The lack of materials and minimal use of furniture create a blank canvas, allowing function to be open for interpretation.

  • Solo House II

    Perched on the edge of a plateau in the forest of Matarraña, Spain, the Solo House II is meant to highlight its surroundings, not to distract from. Its circular form rides the edge of its elevated plot, creating a courtyard in its center. A glass facade allows for panoramic views of the rustic landscape while sliding mesh curtains act as both a private barrier as well as an access point to the exterior. Due to its rural setting, the house is completely self-sustaining, operating off of photovoltaic panels and a water collection and purification system.
