The most costly parts of the build were the board-formed concrete walls and fireplace. “We believe it was worth spending the money here for a few reasons,” reveals architect Cavin Costello. “The mass anchors the house into the landscape, and the material is incredibly durable—something we need in the harsh desert sun. The board-forms give the home a wonderful character.”

The walls behind the fireplace are 400-millimeter-thick rammed earth, and they were formed on site by a specialist contractor.

“Buckets sit around the fireplace to hold the firewood and provide a nice contrast between the cabinetry,” Harding says. The bold black Stovax fireplace is the primary statement in the living room, however it also displays the homeowners’ curated items and a piece of art by Clare Brody from Studio Gallery in Melbourne.
The living space has two expansive glass openings, which were placed to intentionally frame exterior views.
"The wood structure has a depth that creates a play of shadows through the day and a calm atmosphere resembling the feeling of sitting under a tree," says the firm.
Short staircases lead to sequestered nooks made for contemplation and getting work done. "The concrete floors and stairs dissolve the division of inside and outside," says Atelier Oslo. "The interior becomes part of the landscape, and walking in and around the cabin gives a unique experience, where the different qualities from the site become part of the architecture."
The vaulted ceiling gives the living room a sense of drama and spaciousness. The built-in redwood couch runs the length of the room.

The Atrium Townhome by Robitaille Curtis has a 32-foot atrium with a skylight running the full width of the house.

The use of a net in this location precludes the need for guardrails and opens the floor plan to unimpeded views to and from the third floor. Riggers from Cirque du Soleil provided and installed the trapeze net.
Radiant floor heating, a high-efficiency boiler, a heat recovery ventilator, and a convection wood stove work to conserve energy.

The residence was designed by Baltimore-based architecture firm Ziger/Snead and built by Blackhorse Construction. Its living room features chairs by A. Rudin and a daybed and sofa by Bright Chair.

Glass surfaces act as transparent room dividers throughout the home. Here, an open living area is divided by a ridged glass-and-steel-framed french window.
On the first floor, solid steel plates transform into a perforated metal spine, which cuts right through the building to the top floor.
The use of the perforations throughout the home help to intensify the light through various aperture dimensions. They also led to the project's name: The Perf House.
