Woodshed Guest House

From the salvaged Douglas fir cladding to the gabled roofline, the Woodshed Guest House is greatly influenced by local architecture found throughout the Vermont foothills. The home is composed of two mirrored structures, joined together by an entryway and outdoor terrace. The southern wing is made up of three bedrooms, a kitchen, and living space for guests to stay while visiting the main house down the street, while the north end serves as a space for entertaining with a bar, lounge, and game room. Horizontal screens on the public end mask the interior from the street but also allow natural light to seep in through their cracks. On the opposite, private side, the timber siding is broken up by a glass facade, exposing views of the mountainous landscape.

  • Chimney House

    Set between a 16th-century church and a wooden barn in the Slovenian town of Logatec, the Chimney House takes inspiration from both of its neighbors. The linear form and oiled larch boards that make the exterior facade replicate the dark weathered timber of the adjacent barn, while the unique pitch of the roof is reminiscent of the nearby chapel. At the center of the home, a wood-burning stove dominates the interior — giving the home its namesake — and also separating the common and private areas. Oiled oak floors and walls lead up to a board formed concrete ceiling connected by a glazed gap, exposing the entire interior to natural light.

  • Maui Clifftop House

    Composed of a series of mini houses, the Maui Clifftop House adopts a U-shaped design to expose every room to the ocean views. Each private unit is made of a bedroom and bathroom, connected by a central kitchen and dining area. The interior complements its natural seaside setting with a palette of stucco and bamboo plywood on the walls, floors, and ceilings. Externally, the folded pattern of the roof not only works with the climate's harsh winds and extreme sun but also helps the home's weathered wooden facade fade into the rocky landscape. Its oversized design creates double the living space with covered outdoor areas while acting as a wooden sky deck with some of the most stunning views on the island's northern coast.
