Alta Chalet is designed as a year-round weekend retreat for a family of five, comprising 3,000 square feet of efficiently planned living space spread over two storeys. Located near the end of a cul-de-sac in a private ski club development
In close cooperation with the couple, architect Mette Lange designed this dream home. The result is a functional and modern wooden house with clean lines and a transparent design that offers a clear view of the surrounding reed forest, beach meadow and coast.
The Ocean Pond Residence is neither the retro modern, upside down house nor a McMansion. In fact its footprint is less than 3,500 square feet on a 42-acre site. It is organized in section like a Fibonacci spiral utilizing five continuous levels of activity culminating in a roof top point look out across the sea, farmlands and pond.
Situated on a sweeping Texas Hill Country meadow, Milagro Springs Retreat is defined by a series of jagged roof peaks inspired by the rise and fall of the surrounding hills. Lovingly referred to it as “The Sanctuary” by its owners, an active couple of ordained ministers, and executed on a very modest budget
The concept – a modern reinterpretation of the vernacular dogtrot house found commonly in Appalachia – aligns the more private program along the ridge creating a linear bar running east-west optimizing the long exposures of the building.
This family retreat house has won two major awards in the Auckland-Northland Architectural Designers New Zealand (ADNZ) awards, announced on Friday, June 30, 2017. The project won the award for a Residential New Home between 150 square metres and 300 square metres
