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.

  • Lonna Sauna

    On a small island just off the coast of Helsinki, the Lonna Sauna is restoring a sacred Finnish tradition. The building is constructed from handcrafted logs that were left unfinished, reminiscent of Finland's traditional saunas. In contrast, the sculpted zinc roof creates a contemporary form. Along with the warmth of the wood-burning stove, large windows allow in views of both the cityscape and open sea for a relaxing atmosphere to detox both your mind and body.

  • Slate Cabin

    Named after its stone cladding, the Slate Cabin takes inspiration from the rocky Welsh landscape. The exterior's simple rectangular form is covered in reclaimed slate tiles taken from local farms. In contrast to its dark facade, the interior — including the walls, built-in table and chairs, cabinets, and shelves — is sheathed in light birch plywood. The compact retreat consists of only a bedroom, bathroom, dining room, and a kitchen with wood-burning stove. To give the compact interior a spacious quality, loads of light is brought in by a series of windows lining the ceiling, while additional glazed openings in the walls frame in views of the surrounding mountains and fields.
