Designed to capture the character of traditional wooden cabins within a contemporary framework, this family residence in Fairplay, Colorado, is comprised of two volumes linked by an outdoor deck.
The central hearth includes space for firewood storage. The kitchen is off to the left, and the dining room is to the right.
The central fireplace anchors the open-plan living space and serves as a divider between the rooms. Mahogany-framed sliding doors lead out to the deck. The living space features oak floors throughout.
The cedar-paneled cathedral ceilings give the interiors an airy sense of space.
The sculptural poured formed concrete hearth in the living room area is a striking original feature.
There are four viewing decks to take in the spectacular scenery and sunsets. The extensive glazing forms a seamless integration of indoor-outdoor space.
“Designed, modeled and fabricated using both digital and manual processes each feeding the other, the intensity of the complex timber roof structure belies its warm domestic scale and character,” Gianni Botsford says.
The floors are white-oiled Dinesen Douglas fir.
The kitchen console is clad in industrially polished copper.
In the living room, the wood and concrete shell is accented with a steel stair railing and a window wall with a Mondrian pattern in the glazing.
By the Saey fireplace, a wicker chair from Malawi echoes the lines of Pinch’s Willo table. Matching other pieces to their line “is not an exact science,” Oona says, “just an innate reaction to things we love.”
A continuous deck or veranda, called engawa in Japanese, functions as both a step and seat, to seamlessly connect the house to the garden. Deep eaves, or hisashi, provide cover and reflect light from the interior.
Interior spaces, such as the main living area, deliberately frame exterior views. Per the architects: "Thus, the beautiful oak trees on the opposite side of the creek are still 'belonging' to this house by the use of a technique called shakkei or borrowed scenery—to expand limits visually."
The floor-to-ceiling windows are made from tempered glass that can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees. The windows provide stunning views from the Sunset Strip to the ocean.

Windows and natural light surround the living room with a locally made Haiku Home ceiling fan.
Notice the striking ceiling joists, which are supported by traditional criss-cross braces.
A Roscharch Blotch fireplace is located centrally in the open-place living area.
At the heart of the hut is a wood-burning stove. The kitchenette features a Hansgrohe tap, a Franke sink, laminated chipboard cabinets, along with high-pressure laminate counters and backsplashes.

"Every good RV renovation starts with a couple douses of light-colored paint," says Lauren. "We literally painted everything we could with Sherwin Williams Passive Gray. The change was dramatic, even from just some paint."

"There are two potential places to sleep in Marjorie, one is where the table is, but our favorite is where the two sofas are," says Bonnie. "I installed a small ledge right beneath the cushion and had a piece of wood cut to match its size. It lives underneath one of the cushions and at night, we slide it out to make a bed. The back cushions fit side by side on top of the wood to make it a complete king-size bed!"
Sliding walls wallpapered with Pimpernell by William Morris separate the bathroom from the lounge/sleeping space.
“Stone, timber, heaviness, masculinity were definitely very big a few years ago, but now it’s becoming more feminine, intricate, and delicate as far as architecture,” explains architect Jamie Daugaard.

Wilson transformed the interior of this 1974 airstream so it could be used for a variety of purposes, such as a dressing room for Iggy Pop and Beck during the Project Pabst Music Festival in Portland, Oregon.

The shallow plan helps with cross ventilation, while a deep overhang to the north provides shade for the living areas in the summer.
Overhead storage and wall cabinetry were removed to make the interior more spacious.
The living room was revitalized by Decor Aid with several new furniture additions and refined accents. The balance of the space also had to be perfected with object placement. Each sculptural piece incorporates a different material, adding further layers of visual interest.
Glazing on both sides gives the television room an airy, pavilion-like feel.
Bold, saturated tones contrast beautifully with the metallic finishes and neutral colors that characterize the furnishings in the living room.
An original brick wall with an arch opening frames views of The Press Room, a cozy lounge lined with paneled walls painted a deep cranberry hue to match the Press Room bar front.
Colourful furnishings animate the space. Thonet armchair, Jardan Nook lounge and Hay side tables provide a comfortable, deliberately low key setting.
The cabins—all designed in-house—sport a minimalist aesthetic, deliberately pared-down to let nature take the spotlight.

In this house in the Mornington Peninsula in the south of Melbourne, materials like concrete, natural stone, steel and cedar are perfect backdrops for architecture and interior design firm SJB to use bold colors and edgy midcentury furniture.
Masahiro and Mao Harada of Mount Fuji Architects Studio wanted to break with the traditional definition of a house when they designed this small Tokyo home. They achieved their goal by using the same material for the ceiling, the walls, and the floor, creating a space that flows beautifully.
