The Brown Bar aka lostrivermodern is a modern cabin nestled in the woods with all the amenities of a full-time home. Two hours west of Washington D.C., in scenic Lost River, West Virginia, the cabin is a getaway for a young family. It is completely immersed in the landscape and can accommodate up to eight people.
Set into the side of a steeply sloped site on a concrete foundation the home boasts walls of glass, which extend the space into the tree canopy. The main level features a master bedroom and bath along with the open kitchen, living and dining areas. The adjacent ipe deck expands the living area to the exterior and is the perfect setting to relax and take in the natural surroundings. The living area is filled with natural light, and features a wood-burning stove to keep warm in the winter months. The lower level is a walkout basement with polished concrete floors and is complete with a media room, bedroom, bath, mechanical room and bunkroom for the kids.
The single bar typology is 16’ wide by 64’ long, the largest module the factory can produce, thus maximizing the efficiencies of implementation within the factory, while minimizing the work onsite. The 2,000 sf home is wrapped in cedar siding and seeks to blend into the surrounding landscape. The Brown Bar’s spare lines and beautiful natural setting leave only light, sound and space vying for attention.
In order to reduce construction costs, the client acted as his own general contractor and spent his summer months and weekends finishing the home. To educate and share his experience of building a prefab home with others, weekly and monthly updates were documented on his blog, aprefabproject.blogspot.com. Additionally, he has made lostrivermodern available to rent and visit for a weekend or vacation via his website: www.lostrivermodern.com

Complete interior renovation of a 1980s split level house in the Virginia suburbs. Main level includes reading room, dining, kitchen, living and master bedroom suite. New front elevation at entry, new rear deck and complete re-cladding of the house. Interior: The prototypical layout of the split level home tends to separate the entrance, and any other associated space, from the rest of the living spaces one half level up. In this home the lower level "living" room off the entry was physically isolated from the dining, kitchen and family rooms above, and was only connected visually by a railing at dining room level. The owner desired a stronger integration of the lower and upper levels, in addition to an open flow between the major spaces on the upper level where they spend most of their time. ExteriorThe exterior entry of the house was a fragmented composition of disparate elements. The rear of the home was blocked off from views due to small windows, and had a difficult to use multi leveled deck. The owners requested an updated treatment of the entry, a more uniform exterior cladding, and an integration between the interior and exterior spaces. SOLUTIONS The overriding strategy was to create a spatial sequence allowing a seamless flow from the front of the house through the living spaces and to the exterior, in addition to unifying the upper and lower spaces. This was accomplished by creating a "reading room" at the entry level that responds to the front garden with a series of interior contours that are both steps as well as seating zones, while the orthogonal layout of the main level and deck reflects the pragmatic daily activities of cooking, eating and relaxing. The stairs between levels were moved so that the visitor could enter the new reading room, experiencing it as a place, before moving up to the main level. The upper level dining room floor was "pushed" out into the reading room space, thus creating a balcony over and into the space below. At the entry, the second floor landing was opened up to create a double height space, with enlarged windows. The rear wall of the house was opened up with continuous glass windows and doors to maximize the views and light. A new simplified single level deck replaced the old one.

This house in Austin’s Bouldin neighborhood is an exercise in efficiency and invention. The site’s three heritage trees drove the design, whose interplay of Hardiplank, wood, metal, and glass is enhanced by thoughtful details and clever spatial solutions. A cypress wood front porch reflects up the easy-going architecture of the neighborhood and another porch overlooks the courtyard, which offers a private outdoor room. Inside, cork floors, a walnut divider, and built-in entertainment center in the main living areas enrich the otherwise simple and sunny modern space. Frosted glass throughout the house provides natural light and privacy during the day and, filters the glow from the adjacent Moontower at night.

This house addition on a typical San Francisco lot doubles the size of the existing non-descript 1954 "Contractor's Special". Our strategy carves out a series of strongly contained, yet open, outdoor rooms that carefully balance between engaging the site's expansive urban views and maintaining a distinctly private domestic realm. The initial move is to carve a new small internal outdoor courtyard and entry out of one of the existing bedrooms, bringing light into the center of the new scheme. The rear façade and third floor roof decks build on this strategy of carving voids out of a solid mass—perhaps an apt image of the way many urbanites create their private homes within the density of the city.
