Project Description

2009 RADA

Custom / 3,500 Square Feet Or Less / Merit

A dark, gated wall lends intrigue to this small house in the forest. Unfussy and simply organized, the house has two wings connected by a boardwalk and interior courtyard. "It seemed right to go into the space through a wall, almost like a veil, and then to find this outdoor room that really is an extension of the wings of the building," says Peter Q. Bohlin, FAIA.

One of our judges liked the way the wall creates focus and a "transition from urban life."
