Loblolly House

World Architecture Festival Awards 2008 – Home, Private Houses Category Finalist
Positioned between a dense grove of loblolly pines and a lush foreground of saltmeadow cordgrass and the bay, Loblolly House seeks to deeply fuse the natural elements of this barrier island to architectural form. The timber foundations are at once pragmatic because they minimize the disruption to the ground, and poetic because the dwelling is literally founded on the tree. At the same time, the north, south and east elevations are of the forest. The design of the staggered vertical rain screen was literally composed over a site photograph to evoke the abstraction of solids and voids of the forest wall.
