The double-height lending library anchors a corner of the open-plan room. The book collection was curated with the Strand Bookstore and includes 2,000 volumes from women authors.
A dramatic pink granite table provides a central meeting spot.
The interior decor is Scandinavian-inspired, while also incorporating a 70s feel.
Throw pillows are like the costume jewelry of a bedroom—they put on the finishing touches to a space and help provide a pop of color, yet they can easily be switched out when a trend is no longer in style.
In the dining area, built-in storage was added beneath the staircase. The table is by Ebbe Gehl for John Lewis and the pendant is by Anglepoise.
When asked what's next in the works, Spellman describes how he's working on an upcoming music festival and concert series called Westerly Sound.
During the time he spent exploring the West, Spellman lived and worked in an old Ford van that ran off of vegetable oil.
In one corner of the studio, Spellman has an area dedicated to ceramics, as pictured above.
With plenty of space, Spellman is able to utilize his studio to create his artwork and music, as well as use the area as a gathering area for entertainment.
Located in a historic building in Westerly, Rhode Island, Spellman's studio is infused with natural light, thanks to the expansive windows.
Traveling is one of Spellman's biggest sources of inspiration. Although he has traveled across the globe, it is the Western landscape that he tends to long for when he's not there.
A peek into Spellman's historic studio space in Westerly, Rhode Island.
The walls of the bathroom were painted white.
A renovated bathroom with a new showerstall and tiled wall.
The Sholin's used Smartcore wood-effect vinyl floors in Tahitian Walnut for the new flooring.
A skylight window illuminates the bedroom, which appears larger than it is because of the closet with mirror-clad sliding doors.
A sheepskin rug, a weave hanging on the wall, and vibrant fabrics add much personality to the small mobile home.
The front great room is intentionally public; the furniture-like wall (inspired by Mies’ Farnsworth house) creates privacy for all other rooms—even with no window coverings. No rooms have interior walls that connect with the outer perimeter of the house, echoing a design element of our 1958 E. Stewart Williams house in Palm Springs, CA.
The main bathroom is unified with the rest of the home thanks to the same burnt cement flooring. A solid wood countertop was installed by Inovart Woodworking, and the adjoining white quartz countertop was picked from MSA Marmoraria.
A sliding door to the guest bedroom makes this flexible area even more accessible. A burnt cement floor connects this room to the kitchen.
The black lacquer finish used in the common area was repeated in a headboard for the master bedroom.
The owner and Revollo worked to make the second bedroom into a multi-use space. It can be a living area, a sleeping quarters, or an office.
Inovart Woodworking helped create the metal sheet shelf in the common area.
The dining area between the living room and balcony is the most light-filled space in the common area. The floors, lining, and bench were built using solid wood ripada.
The small partition that separates the living space from the dining area is common in Brazilian homes. Revollo chose it for its character and tradition — as well as the fact that it still lets light in.
Since the owner wanted as much of an open concept as possible, Revollo used a small but impactful detail to designate each space: color. The kitchen is defined by black, the living areas by gray, and the outdoor space by honey.
The interior surfaces of The Phoenix are either raw plywood or galvanized metal resulting in a utilitarian feel with no maintenance needs.
A brush fire in 2013 destroyed some 40 buildings in the Casper Mountain forest and charred much of the vegetation.
The steel firebox situated on the central axis is a ruin from the fire and functions as a centerpiece for outdoor space.
Standing, dead charred timber became the post-and-beam structure, connecting the project with the forest and creating a lasting reminder of its storied past.
A wood stove completes the enclosed room of the structure. Just two rooms make up The Phoenix: one open room and this enclosed room, home to minimal storage.
The Phoenix is what owner and architect Eric Logan describes as a cool little folly in the woods.
One of architect Eric Logan's goals was to make better use of the site.
