Wooden House

Set in the clearing of a Slovenian forest, the Wooden House uses its vertical pentagonal shape to maximize its small plot. While the exterior walls are clad in rugged black metal, the interior is lined with soft wood, which combines with the glass facade to give the feeling of being outdoors. The facade is visible from the living room, dining room, and kitchen on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs, with only the combination bathroom and sauna shielded from view. A small deck and minimal landscaping provide the finishing touches to this minimalist dwelling.

  • The Dell House

    Built on a site with slopes on every side, The Dell House uses a cross-like formation to help divide public areas from private. On the ground level, you'll find the kitchen, dining room, living area, and entrance, while upstairs you find four bedrooms, with a private balcony off the master. The different areas are further defined by their exterior coverings, with a mix of brick, timber, and slate shingles blending harmoniously with the surrounding woods.

  • Marlboro Music Cottages

    Set on 15 acres in the foothills of the Green Mountains, the Marlboro Music Cottages provide accommodations for senior musicians during the college's classical music retreat. The five cabins replicate the 17th-century architecture native to the area with their steep gabled roofs and simple compact forms, while the addition of red cedar planks and Vermont slate roofing bring the structures into the modern era. Internally, the 7-foot walls and pitched ceilings are adorned with local white pine, allowing for an acoustically pleasing area for guests to gather and practice. The masses of timber are broken up by large glazed openings, taking advantage of the warm natural light and surrounding forest landscape.
