Set in a valley in Wanaka, New Zealand, the home of winemaker Nigel Greening was conceived as a series of “tubes” that disappear at one end into the sloped landscape. Architect Andrew Simpson of WireDog Architecture worked with Dunlop Builders to create the 3,390-square-foot house, which features rammed-earth walls both inside and out, a reflection of the owner’s connection to the soil.

Ryan McLaughlin watches the sunset from the deck of the 160-square-foot tiny home he built, with no prior experience, at his parents’ horse ranch in Georgetown, Texas. Soon, the trailer-mounted cabin will be moved to a vineyard, where it will operate grid-free and be available to rent for short stays.

The shingled, zinc-roofed boathouse was envisioned as a simple port of call, where “the only luxury was the landscape,” says Guillermo.
Guillermo, who left the land-scaping mostly natural, is now planting trees to help offset deforestation in the region.
The fully glazed upper floors of the two cabins are designed to take in views of the archipelago, which was inhabited by nomadic tribes before Spanish explorers arrived in the 16th century. Guillermo first visited the area in the mid-1970s. “It was very isolated then,” he says. “The Pan-American Highway reached only to the city of Valdivia. From there, a narrow dirt road covered the remaining 400 kilometers to the Chacao Channel, which separates Chiloé Island from the mainland.”
The Roost26 tiny house features a lightweight, black AG metal roof and facade with a “detachable garden” on one side and bike racks on the other.

Michael specified that the corner window be mullion-free so sitting in the nook feels like you are outside. "By being immersed on two sides without any real obstructions, you get a sense like you are out there in the natural world, in the yard," he says. "This is a particularly wonderful feeling, especially during our long, snowy Minnesota winters, where we can enjoy the beauty and stillness of the snow but still enjoy the warmth and comfort of being inside."
The couple finished the exterior siding with shingles made of Hardie board and painted a deep purple. "We wanted an exterior cladding that was durable, low-maintenance, and relatively DIY-friendly," says Michael. "When looking at our options at the local hardware store, the fish-scale shape popped because it was unique, quirky, and not super serious—and yet could create a contemporary look through uniformly using it with woven corners and minimal detailing."

Polished concrete floors were used for the lower level, and durable wool carpet was used on the upper level.
The dark exterior wood cladding ensures the home blends more seamlessly with the site, while the flat roof is meant to recall "midcentury precedents," said the architects. The “sharkfin clerestory roof” feature transmits light into interior rooms.
The home is surrounded by extensive gardens and mature trees.
To the front, the gardens are laid around a central lawn with a circling driveway which provides parking. There is also a garage for family cars.
