Massive wooden fence, which is a stripe, is on the background of a brick house, which is a square.
Hide&Seek Game. Location of the windows and their size is not designer’s imagination.
However, in this architectural project, you can feel reasonable composition.
The entry of the wood-clad property features beautiful midcentury lines.
Dunin and her team repurposed recycled brick to match the original material on the exterior of the home. Brick was also used to build privacy walls that would still bring in light and air.
The home is surrounded by an acre of woods and overlooks the Great Salt Lake which provides stunning sunset views.
The gabled roof extends to the timber deck and is covered in natural slate tiles.

A perpendicular wing houses the garage. The house has no air conditioning, relying on lake breezes and cross-ventilation for cooling. Each bedroom has a screened door that opens to the deck and an adjustable transom above the hallway door to encourage the circulation of air.
The white board-and-batten facade takes cues from the surrounding stables and is surrounded by billowing grass and birch trees.
Fortunately, the existing structure had good bones, so Edmonds + Lee was able to maintain the dwelling's original footprint, and focus on opening up the interiors.
To evoke the feel of a tiny nature cabin, two massive sliding doors can be used to divide the common areas so that each section can be isolated from the rest of the house.
Here is the lovely home at dusk.
The cedar shingles—common to local buildings—are scaled up to the size of the boards to cover the roof and sidewalls.
Each structure has an independent mechanical system so it can be shut down when not in use.
As with connected farms, the limited material palette unifies the various spaces.
The separate volumes are unified in their external appearance.
From the courtyard, views extend straight through the home to the other side of the structure.
To instill the desired sense of comfort and peace, it was important that the design blend with the setting and local building traditions.
Outside, the couple clad the house with a rain screen of 1.5-by-1.5-inch strips of spruce to create a “modern rustic barn.” The extra-deep sills of the first-floor window become a bench on the outside and a shelf on the inside.
The glazing faces the lake, providing privacy from the road.
The first-floor cantilevers out and is perched like a platform, serving as a great viewpoint for observing the surrounding forest scenery.
Rather than create a typical two-story home, the architects have designed a multi-layered space with a series of platforms.
Erecting a modern cabin where a tool shed once stood became a family exercise for architect Jim Cutler and his daughter, Hannah, who worked with him on the design and build.
It shouldn't be surprising that Hawaii, the state most vulnerable to climate change, is the first to try and mitigate the crucial impact of the rising sea levels.
“I didn’t want the kind of manicured garden that would mean I’d have to come out on weekends and mow the lawn,” says Jean-Baptiste Barache of the country home he built, mostly by himself, over a year and a half.
A sweeping, arc roof that slopes steeply on one side.
The house is set within an expansive meadow.
"In the western facade of the building the individual characters of the different units are most obvious, while in the eastern facade (seen here) their coherence and the cabin as a whole is more prominent," write the architects.
Viewed from the swimming pool, the new scheme largely obscures the original house—appearing as a new-build, modern house of a composition reminiscent of the mid-twentieth-century Case Study Houses.
The gabled roof ridge is parallel to the hill.
The roof was built with prefabricated wood elements.
The home is equipped with solar water heating.
The expansive property contains an extensive forest and trail system.
The home is naturally integrated into its bucolic setting.

The design of the 3890-square-foot main residence and its adjacent barn have been executed with the highest degree of craftsmanship and attention to detail, drawing from traditional influences and the vernacular of the rural northeast.

The cottage stretches for more than 110 feet, with a Muskoka room, or screened-in porch, at the northwestern end.
Vince and Adrienne Murphy’s rural retreat is clad in gray shingles and gray-stained pine. “They wanted the cottage to meld into the woods and be visually quiet,” says architect Kelly Doran, who worked with Portico Timber Frames to build the 2,500-square-foot home.
