Overlooking Lake Trousers, the Sculptor House is a surrealist art piece in the middle of an evergreen forest. The design of the home was a collaboration between sculptor Jacek Jarnuszkiewicz and the architects using the exquisite cadaver method where the contributors pass around the plans, picking up where the other left off. This lead to a pair of intersecting structures clad in contrasting timber planks — one in red cedar and the other in blackened pine. Topped by an angled roof, their differing heights allow for a sheltered top-level deck for observing the surrounding landscape. The lower level also showcases the wooded setting with full-height glazing, connecting the interior to the forest floor.
