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.

  • Hubert St. Triplex Penthouse

    From a liquor merchant to a pistachio baron to a luxury Tribeca residence, the Hubert St. Triplex Penthouse is the resurrection of an 1892 building. Exterior architectural elements, including moldings, cornices, and arched windows were salvaged and restored to their original state, as well as the interior's wooden beams and exposed brick walls. In the double-height living area, a steel and glass catwalk creates a second story, allowing for a wrap-around library. Although concealed from the street below, a 1,000 square-foot penthouse was added to the rooftop, featuring zinc and steel windows, wooden doors, and steel railings to maintain the building's historic charm.

  • 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.
