Frank Harmon designed this house in the woods of Raleigh, North Carolina.
From the architects:
Our design lifts the house off the ground on a series of sono-tube formed concrete piers and 8×8 wooden braces allowing minimal site disturbance. The house opens out to the north and the view with a storefront glass and steel façade stretching from the floor to the ceiling. Contrasting the window wall is the solid thick wall to the south which reaches 7’-0” above the finished floor upstairs wrapping the southwest and southeast corners. The solid wall never touches the roof allowing the house to have a private face to the street while maintaining views through the clearstory towards the forest.
