Digital Pin-up: Cutting House

Posted by on 2/28/13 at 10:54am

The Cutting House is a residence for a return client who wanted to make use of an existing ranch house.  The concept is to salvage the existing house and surround it with new structures that will address the programmatic needs of the owners.  The new structures will provide space for a home office, utility room, gallery space, screened porches and a pool shade structure.  The existing house will be clad in stone with the new structures expressed in a contrasting lighter material that is not yet determined.  The dialogue between the existing and new structures will also include landscape spaces that tie the two architectural expressions together into a cohesive fabric. As the saying goes:  “the most sustainable architecture is the space that you don’t build” or in this case the re-use of the existing structure.  It will be a fun challenge for a great client!

The project team consists of Steve Raike, Bill Aylor, Ted Flato, Laura Kaupp, Chris Krajcer, Oliver Adamson, and Matt Hlavinka.
