Lightbox House

Located on the British Columbia side of the same peninsula that holds Point Roberts, the Lightbox House is a simple home and studio for a photographer and his family. Accessed via a boardwalk that bisects the home's pine tar-coated "dark" side, which holds the stairs, and the glass-covered "light" side, the house blends in well with the surrounding forest. By keeping the size manageable and using a system of exposed wood beams to support the prefab aluminum glazing system, the architects kept costs down while imbuing the home with a sense of simplicity appropriate for an owner who spends his time focused on fine details.
