Light Cottage

The Light Cottage is conceived as a simple one story country retreat with an open living area and single bedroom. Its basic form is a cedar clad box with openings designed to maximize the connection of the interior spaces to the landscape and to allow for dramatic lighting throughout the day. The roof is composed of a series of counter-posed sloped sawtooths with clerestory windows - half facing east and half facing west. As the sun moves across the sky during the day the clerestories capture the moving sunlight creating shifting patterns of light and shadow on the interior. The living and bedroom space connect to partially covered terraces through a series of collapsible accordion glass paneled doors. 1400 gross square feet; one story; one bedroom. Download PDF
