Project Description

2007 RADA
Outbuilding / Grand

This multipurpose outbuilding was designed on a modest budget, but it rises above its humble endowment. Citing its beautiful construction and detailing, our judges gave it a Grand award.

Built several years after the completion of the main home (also designed by Miller/Hull), the structure is essentially the gatehouse to the property, serving as garage, dance studio, potting shed, and office. “When we conceived it, it was going to be a concrete structure,” says project architect Jed Edeler, AIA. But cost concerns scrapped that plan in favor of this version, framed in Douglas fir and clad in standing-seam metal to harmonize with the existing house.

Because the building straddles the property, it needed to be transparent. As a result, polycarbonate sheets serve as covering for the garage, which is topped with exposed-wood ceilings and a green roof. A galvanized plate extends beyond the wood framing, Edeler says, to give the roof a crisp, composed look.
