RD'S MOST VIEWED HOUSES OF 2020

Case Study: Quahaug Point House by Estes Twombly Architects

Case Study: Quahaug Point House by Estes Twombly Architects

With a backyard sloping down to Quonochontaug Pond, this house is in the enviable position of providing access to the Atlantic Ocean. In summer, the outdoorsy owners can load their coolers into a kayak and paddle across the pond to spend the day on the beach. Conceived as a multigenerational camp—a magnet…

Case Study: The Fold House by Holly & Smith Architects

Case Study: The Fold House by Holly & Smith Architects

Whether a work of architecture is about materiality, place, or creating an experience, finding a “way in” can mean taking inspiration from something very specific. In the case of Fold House, what appears to be the ultimate inert, low-maintenance machine was inspired by the almost primordial ecosystem of the Louisiana bottomland. Ironically, perhaps,…

Case Study: Box Camp by SALA Architects

Case Study: Box Camp by SALA Architects

The driveway winding toward this family cabin encapsulates everything Wisconsin’s northwoods is known for. It meanders through a mixed forest of oak, fir, birch, aspen, and red and white pine before approaching the house along an open meadow. You can see through the trees to one of the region’s many lakes where…

Case Study: X House by Snow Kreilich Architects

Case Study: X House by Snow Kreilich Architects

All houses strike up a conversation with their setting, and few have a livelier dialogue than the X House and the cliff on which it sits on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Resting lightly on a rocky promontory above Lake Superior, the house is a platform for viewing both the tranquil sunsets and the…

2020 RDAA | Custom Rural or Vacation House | Whidbey Farm | mwworks

2020 RDAA | Custom Rural or Vacation House | Whidbey Farm | mwworks

When you love both architecture and nature, there’s no more powerful experience than viewing one through the other. That’s the magic that fuels Whidbey Farm and accounts for its great success in this awards program and in others. The house—designed for a couple in their 70s, their adult children and their…

Case Study: Rural Retreat by Rehkamp Larson Architects

Case Study: Rural Retreat by Rehkamp Larson Architects

Minnesota has a strong cabin culture, and Rehkamp Larson Architects has designed more than its share of this building type over the years.  The Minneapolis-based practice ranges freely among city, suburban, and rural, including weekend retreats on the spectrum between simple and bespoke. With Wisconsin just to the east, farmhouses are part…

Case Study: Hillside House and Guesthouse by Hoedemaker Pfeiffer Architects

Case Study: Hillside House and Guesthouse by Hoedemaker Pfeiffer Architects

Whatever the topography or scale, a good house celebrates the experience of space inside and out, and these two buildings do that extraordinarily well. On a remote island in Puget Sound, the getaways are as rugged as their setting, but cocoon-like as well. The serene main house and guesthouse demonstrate the restorative potential…

Case Study: Koser II by Neumann Monson Architects

Case Study: Koser II by Neumann Monson Architects

When Neumann Monson president Tim Schroeder, AIA, and his wife found themselves with an emptying nest, they decided it was time to move from the Iowa City suburbs to a closer-in, walkable neighborhood. They were already veterans of a half-dozen do-it-yourself renovations, so they weren’t intimidated by fixer-uppers. They found the perfect opportunity…

2020 RDAA | Custom Rural or Vacation House | Horizon House | Lake|Flato Architects

2020 RDAA | Custom Rural or Vacation House | Horizon House | Lake|Flato Architects

It was, as is usual for rural homes, all about the land. The developer of this sprawling house asked Lake|Flato Architects for a design that leverages its unique Mojave Desert setting overlooking the Las Vegas Valley. “We had nice conversations about how to use natural materials and the local ecology to connect it…

Case Study: Pacific Palisades Residence by ShubinDonaldson Architects

Case Study: Pacific Palisades Residence by ShubinDonaldson Architects

From one side, this terraced house looks as if it grew from the steep green slope on which it stands. From the other, it seems to float above it, a pavilion on a scrubby perch. Large yet eminently livable, the Pacific Palisades House is a case study for the way design can…

Case Study: Harrison House by Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein

Case Study: Harrison House by Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein

When this 1950s midcentury modern house was designed for its hilly, wooded site in Mountain Brook, Alabama, it was a somewhat rogue architectural contribution to the tony traditional suburb of Birmingham. The original owners were from New York, says architect James Choate, AIA, and brought their sophisticated tastes with them. “The husband was some guy…

Parti Shot: Oregon Coast House by Chadbourne + Doss Architects

Parti Shot: Oregon Coast House by Chadbourne + Doss Architects

Wedged into a hillside on the Oregon coast, this zinc- and concrete-clad house should last nearly as long as the cliff it hugs. It’s a “forever house,” designed by Chadbourne + Doss Architects as the principal residence for a retiring couple and visiting family. The shape and siting derive from highly restrictive site…
