건축가 자신 경계에 대한 실험
자신의 집을 통하여 여려가지 실험을 하기로 한 건축가가 4년동안
진행한 실험 하우스에요.
사이트 부터 건물의 작은 것 하나하나 건축가의 손을 거치지 않을 일들이 없네요.
벽의 판넬디자인, 맞춤형 허리케인 클립 타입, 맞춤형 3프레임구조 창문,
문, 바닥, 천장 까지...
친환경 컨텐츠 또한 많은 것들을 디자인 했네요.
건축가와 함께 계속 이 집은 성장하며 발전하고
다듬어지면서 영원히 성장을 멈추지 않을 것 같군요.
The site is in the country in a partially wooded area with rolling hills with views to the west and south. The existing house is located on the highest ground of the site on the edge of where the trees meet the native prairie grass meadow.

The project has been built by the architect with his own hands. Each of the last four summers, college architecture students have been hired to assist with the design and construction. Each piece was designed and then constructed, which allowed the design to continue to evolve as it was being constructed. Everything was custom designed and built on site: Panelization of walls, fabrication of custom hurricane clips, hybrid wood and steel wall structures, 5 staircase designs, 3 custom window frames, doors, floors, ceilings and custom millwork.
The project is intended to continue for the rest of the architect’s life. It is a “work in progress” with many areas unfinished today, opportunities for tomorrow.
Green building techniques were integrated into the architecture: passive solar, natural ventilation insulated concrete forms, R-45 roof insulation, renewable materials, radiant flooring, heat pumps, and a green roof system.
The design explores ways to intertwine what is man-made with what is natural. The intention is to create a house that is so interconnected with the land that it is simultaneously natural and man-made, much like abandoned tractors and farm machinery rusting away in the rural landscape.
The intent was to create open dynamic spaces that are defined and still feel connected to the larger whole. This was done by canting walls, pulling floors away from walls, creating mezzanine spaces, large window walls, and stairs that seem to fly.
