Caperton House Design in West Virginia

July 09, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Designed by Fernau and Hartman Architct, located in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, the site of the Caperton House transitions from rural road, across open meadow, to dense deciduous forest—where a south-facing promontory commands the Potomac River. Both rural retreat and gathering place, the house engages visitors with the site, the river, and the distant ridges. while including gallery space for a collection of West Virginia art. The building deploys local traditions, materials, craftsmanship, and practice. Local masons built the limestone ‘arms’ with native stone, local timber framers used state-grown oak, and a combination of metal and wood siding reflects indigenous building practice. The colorful palette ameliorates the bleakness of winter and helps buildings recede into the landscape the rest of the year.

Cool Pool House by Hariri and Hariri Architecture

May 10, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Home Design

It may be a pool house, but this cool 364m2 suburban Connecticut home could easily be the abode of choice. Designed by forward-thinking New York-based Hariri & Hariri Architecture, the Wilton Pool House idea is based on the principles of modern minimalism and a strong connection to nature. The pool house architecture is characterized by a long, angular archway of rich, Brazilian walnut wood that runs the length of the pool and folds over an outdoor seating area. The archway provides protection from the sun when lounging, swimming, or enjoying an al fresco meal. Glass walls enclose the main living areas, which contains a kitchen, bar, bathroom and a small terrace.
