Tangled Cubes

Designed as a lifestyle home the program was deliberately split into two units centered around a large central court. The larger of these two units holds the formal and informal areas on the lower floor with the bedrooms on the upper level. The smaller “Outhouse Unit” serves as the entertainment den along with a gymnasium, sauna, changing rooms, and service areas. The outhouse faces the central court on the South side while the North is defined by a monolithic white compound wall-as found in older tropical estates- that encloses a private garden, which could be developed into a gridded orchard over time.

Project • By Woldon ArchitectsHousing


Woldon Architects is on site for a new farmhouse between the Falmouth and Helford estuaries in Cornwall.

Project • By ETB StudioPrivate Houses


Located along the fringe of Venice’s Southern Lagoon, in an urban centre of low building density, the project for three housing units is composed prevalently by isolated buildings on lots. The decision to develop the different units through a single, compact organism stems from the strategic objective to optimise the area’s scarce available space, preserving as much surface as possible for the garden.   This morphological scheme simultaneously allows for the stimulation of social interaction and the civil cohabitation of residents, firm values that have always characterized the rural lifestyles of the Venetian countryside. These values once physically manifested themselves into villas, barchessas, farmhouses, and compact... More

Family Farmhouse

This new Maine home couldn't happen quickly enough for this high energy, growing family. With three small children, and active parents, this family was ready to build a home with room to grow and play. The home owners desired an architecture that spoke to a "modern farmhouse." In an effort to keep costs in check we used simple forms with a few large, multipurpose gestures.   Our site-specific solution sited the house on the northern portion of furthest parcel from the main road affording a sun pocket play yard to the south with views to the pond beyond. Upon approach one is greeted with a bold barn form, which shelters the main house from cold northeasterly winds, and breaks the scale of the house proper. A large portal, a take on th... More

Pepco Darnestown Substation

Following their collaboration on the Southeast Substation, Pepco returned to CORE to design their location in Darnestown, which turned into a farmhouse style building that beautifully integrates into the suburban landscape. The Darnestown Substation presented a unique design challenge due to its proximity to single family homes and the project’s height requirements. It was critical to use a building typology that would allow for masking of the scale of the structure and making it blend in with its surroundings. CORE came up with a design that is inspired by a barn, with the use of the materials adjusted to the scale of the substation and carefully considering the location of openings on varying roof heights. The substation design was... More
