Thanks to my buddy at Justin at Materialicious for bringing this one to my attention. These guys are doing some great things in our neighboring state, Arkansas.
Description from the architect’s site:
The challenge for the Arkansas House was to reassemble a fire-damaged home and introduce possibilities for re-thinking the house’s spatial character by adding new elements. The low-slung existing tartan grid structure was instilled with a new sense of hierarchy through the addition of light monitors and suspended lofts to the children’s spaces, a new kitchen, and a great room with a saddle-back roof for living, entertaining, and the display of fine art. Comfortably astride the old house, the angled shell forms exude empathy with a rusted barn nearby; the effects of weather and dripping tree sap provide their rusted surfaces with character – raw and visceral – a foil to the painted shades of beige on the walls below
