WH House

Located in Ukraine's Black Sea coastal area, the WH House is made up of a pair of mirrored volumes linked by a uniform facade. Clean lines and a sleek black and white palette establish a contemporary exterior, while the structures' L-shape creates a central courtyard for dual swimming pools and a spa zone. This outdoor space is bordered by the main living area, consisting of a kitchen, dining room, and living room arranged in an open layout. A glazed staircase leads to the private areas. Each bedroom contains its own bathroom, wardrobe, and terrace overlooking the courtyard below.

  • Hawk's Nest

    Perched on a cliffside overlooking the Potomac River, the Hawk's Nest makes its home in an abandoned limestone quarry. The structure consists of a glass and steel volume balancing on a pair of concrete pedestals — flanking a sheltered courtyard. Other than acting as just a foundation, these two pillars are also functional, housing a studio in one and an entry staircase in the other. A linear layout allows every room to take advantage of the floor-to-ceiling glazing, affording views of the West Virginia landscape throughout the entirety of the interior.

  • Outpost House

    Surrounded by nothing but the remote landscape of Idaho's high desert, the Outpost House functions for both labor and leisure. The structure carries a small footprint out of respect to its natural surroundings, covered in a concrete block facade to stand up to the harsh climate. That material also extends around an enclosed garden, creating a lush green contrast to the rigid terrain. Free of partitions, the interior maintains an open layout, consisting of a living area and studio space topped by a mezzanine bedroom. The palette compliments the warm hues of its surroundings with unfinished recycled fir floors and natural clay plaster. This double height space is punctured by a large glazed opening, intentionally placed to take advantage of the nearby Sawtooth Mountains in their various seasonal state.
