E. Cobb Architect's "Open House" is featured on the cover of Home and Architectural Trends Magazine this month (check out full article here). The house presented a very unique structural challenge. The aircraft hangar door, that assists in the openness, imposes a 10,000 pound thrust on the house while it opens. Some creative structural design allowed for this door to be placed while keeping the structure light. Click below for construction photos.

HV Engineers is excited to see that Velocipede’s Northwest Harvest House has broken ground. George Ostrow of Velocipede Architects, described the mission of the house to be “a self-sufficient, single-family residence where food, sun, and rain can be harvested on site.”

Eva Hagberg's recently published, Nature Framed: At Home in the Landscape, features Domestic Architecture's True House (37th Avenue Residence) along with twenty-four other recent residential projects from around the United States.
The book examines how, “these houses are designed to frame a very particular vision of nature for their owners that brings them as close as possible to nature while remaining indoors.”
