Warm, natural cedar is used for the siding, railings, outdoor shower enclosure, and brise-soleil.
Elevated into the trees, the open-plan living area opens up to nature via outdoor decks on either side.
The architects strategically placed the home just north of its neighbors for greater privacy. Set on a very long and narrow site, the home enjoys direct access to Great Peconic Bay with clear views of the water.
The second floor houses a 900-square-foot apartment that can be kept separate from the main floor residence for rental purposes or can be connected via a door. "In what had been an attic for storing fan belts and auto supplies, we created a large open apartment with full bath and kitchen," says McCuen.
The 56-foot home spent three years being used as a trade show prototype by HMK Prefab Homes. The current owners purchased it at the 2014 Dwell on Design conference in Los Angeles.
An early picture of Lynn Hall nestled against the hillside. The facade stood out for its clean lines, as well as the elegant use of natural stone and wood.
A recent photo shows the main structure and adjacent cottage, both of which were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. At that point in time, this view of the property would have been hidden by dozens of hemlocks encroaching on the building.
The town of Vail has enlisted 359 Design's help to produce 32 affordable housing units in the Chamonix Vail project. The modular homes come in five different types and are fabricated in Idaho before being shipped to the site.
Named after its rooftop photovoltaic panels, the Solar Studio is the first completed build in NODE’s customizable Trillium Series.
“We were trying to get some sort of verticality, so that it appears the house doesn’t just hover into the ground, but also rises up to the sky,” says Stuart Narofsky, FAIA and principal architect.
From the rear, the home’s layout as a two-story structure becomes clearer, as does its aggressive use of angular dimensions and expansive walls of glass.
At first glance, the structure appears to be a single-story home. The surrounding trees create additional privacy as the yard begins to slope toward the rear.

A wooden screen provide protection to the home's entry while the garage door is discreetly hidden in the quartz sinter facade.
Modern in Montana: a Flathead Lake cabin that's a grownup version of a treehouse.
Method Homes’ Method Cabin is one of their most popular models. Designed by Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects, this customizable prefab series ranges from 1,200 to 2,800 square feet.
From the front, Greg Hoffman and Kirsten Brady’s home in Portland, Oregon, bears little resemblance to the daylight ranch house that once stood in its place. Yet upon closer inspection, it is clear that the enlarged structure is actually an updated version of the same dwelling that has occupied the site since the early 1950s. More windows, a trellised roofline, a basalt privacy wall, and a flat-roofed, top-floor addition are among the most striking changes. Plantings were also added to enhance the yard. “There was zero landscaping,” says Greg, “If you look at the original photos, the house was just sitting on the ground.” All of the new features are carefully oriented so that the sightline from the street through the house to the vista beyond remains open. “The original house had a gap in the hedge so people could see the view,” Greg recalls. “We said, ‘Let’s keep that.’”
From the rear, references to Florida Cracker architecture is more obvious, with views of the home's wide veranda and central corridor. Adding an additional 800 square feet of living space, both the front and rear porches are a distinct part of the home's design and its close relationship with the outdoors.
Wide glass apertures connect the living and dining room to the new backyard.
The home was originally built by California architect Walter Thomas Brooks in 1962. The owners, Janet and Mark Hall, fell in love with its midcentury design and connection to the property's surrounding blue oak trees.
Set between three large cedars, the fourth one grows straight up through the second bedroom.
The home cantilevers over the hillside.
Constructed from locally sourced poplar plywood, the lightweight cabin was designed to be mobile and can be moved around the campsite depending on the season.
Ninety-six individual modules were constructed offsite and fully finished before they were assembled on site like stacked LEGO blocks.
The floating suites were prefabricated in a workshop in the Pyrenees to reduce production costs and minimize site impact.
HabHouse discovered that the home originally featured an earthy color palette of browns, grays, and greens. The home's current colors are inspired by another Straub design, The Thompson House on Poppy Peak Street in Pasadena.
A metal roof structure shades the addition.

“It’s a great little place—a throwback to the old days of California coastal communities,” says Montalba.
Together, the louvered sections of fence and the trellised roof overhangs paint the breezeway with shadows.
The home's overhangs provide shade. “We wanted to make sure the house was comfortable,” says Ikegami. “You have cross-ventilation, and the interior is filled with light from the clerestory.”
The structure is raised on stilts to allow air flow beneath the home and minimize damage to the landscape.
Architect David Tapias Monné merged old and new at Josep Cruset and Encarna Rega’s country house in Reus, Spain. Off the back of the original house, which Josep’s family has owned for decades, Tapias created a 1,500-square-foot addition made of prefabricated cross-laminated timber (CLT). Existing features include a rainwater reservoir and a workshop once used by Josep’s father.

Thick lines of wood frame the alternating stucco and tongue-and-groove panels leading to the entrance. A dramatic cantilevering section juts out from the gently sloping roof.
Inspired by LivingHomes’ RK2 model, this custom prefab-hybrid home was created for actor Will Arnett in Beverly Hills.
The simple massing blends into its surroundings—the module's rectangular, dark facade features large, punched openings that wrap around the shelter. Each offering a unique perspective, the openings draw nature into focus. Large, operable walls and glazing connect the indoors to the outdoors.
In the shadow of Denali mountain, amid Alaska’s meadows and icy streams, a former teacher and a four-time Iditarod winner calls upon Mayer Sattler-Smith to design a modernist cabin as expansive as the Last Frontier.
The gabled entry features a patterned, wood rainscreen that evokes the forked ribs of the Saguaro cactus while the recessed entry is akin to a Saguaro boot, the holes in the giant cacti that many desert animals use as their homes.

The house draws its name, “Pleats,” from the corrugated metal that wraps the gabled volume, reminiscent of the pleated exterior of the Saguaro cactus.
The U-shaped plan of Music Box Residence by Scott Edwards Architecture has large volumes on both sides with a glassy two-story entry space in the middle. A long bridge, with a bamboo forest below, leads from the sidewalk to the main entry. The exterior is clad in black stained siding reminiscent of sho-sugi ban in order to pay homage to the family's Japanese ancestry.
The timber-clad home is nestled into the lush foliage of the existing landscape.
Designed in 1950 for a teacher named Foster, this unique two-bedroom midcentury known as the Foster House was one of the architect's earliest residential commissions.
The peaked roofline of the original home was flattened, while corner windows take advantage of staggering city views.
Plant Prefab was originally established in 2016 as an offshoot of LivingHomes, a design and development company that’s built dozens of award-winning prefabs—including actor Will Arnett's home.
The design team at Feldman Architecture was inspired by the prominent views and beautiful slopes surrounding the Meadow House.
Set amidst the mow eastern mountains of Pueblo Eden, this contemporary home was constructed in four months with a prefab steel-frame system clad in low-maintenance sheet metal.
