Pine Forest Cabin – 29 May 2013
In order to meet the client’s budget goals, an efficient plan and cost effective selection of building materials reduced construction costs and led to the simple box design. The use of sheet materials both inside and out maximized material efficiency while emphasizing the simplicity of the cabin’s form. Two concrete walls cradle the box and allow it to cantilever over the hillside, reducing effective site disturbance. Elevating the cabin allowed for unobstructed views down slope and to the mountains beyond, transforming a modest living space from ordinary room to a viewing platform that extends from inside to out.

Capitol Hill Residence – 27 May 2013
With a compact form and several integrated sustainable systems, this residence achieves the client’s goals to maximize the site’s views and resources while responding to its microclimate. The roof rainwater collects into a steel entry water feature, day light penetrates deep into the house through a central translucent slot, and exterior mounted mechanical shades can prevent excessive heat gain.
