Located in the woods of east Alabama, this project takes advantage of an irregular, sloping site by locating the home overlooking a natural valley. The form of the house is an arrangement of interlocking interior spaces expressed as a simple gable form with additive elements. The design features a modest attitude towards both interior and exterior finishes featuring corrugated metal, cypress, steel, painted glass, and fiber-cement siding. The site for this residence encouraged a sequence of spaces that opened up to specific views of both the interior and the exterior.

From the Judges
Traditional forms but very cool; tasteful; charming, plays with what’s normal.
