Villafranca House

A custom design project where the architects have taken care of every last detail inside and outside this resounding piece of domestic architecture. A home with an urban vocation, which looks beyond its perimeter fence, showing itself as a great design object that dominates its quiet and pleasant residential environment. Javier de Paz Javier de Paz Villafranca House is located very close to Madrid on a large flat rectangular plot surrounded by other single-family homes, all with their garden and enough space around them. A very monotonous and quiet context ideal for family life, where most of the buildings dialogue only with their own garden and do not look beyond the li... More

Wisconsin Cabin

Resolution: 4 Architecture designed this modern prefab cabin for a rural wooded site in Door County, Wisconsin where modular construction simplified the logistics of building on a remote site where reliable labor is not always available. Surrounded by trees filtering dappled light onto the site, this two-bedroom, two-bath retreat offers a tranquil setting for its owners. The design provides connection to the outdoors with the implementation of multiple covered deck spaces. Natural light is abundant inside as a result of the butterfly roof design that allows for tall ceilings and clerestory windows. @Resolution: 4 Architecture @Resolution: 4 Architecture @Resolution: 4 Architecture @Resolution: 4 Architecture @Resoluti...

MANHATTAN BEACH | RESIDENCE

The house is situated on a narrow lot amidst a spectrum of 1950’s era beach bungalows and an eclectic mix of freshly minted estates. The concept for this home originated from a desire to generate a timeless balance between the vernacular of mid-century California beach architecture and contemporary sensibilities towards sustainable materials, function, vistas and natural light.

HILLSBOROUGH | CAROLANDS

Taking cues from the neighboring classical Carolands Chateau, this home for six maximizes a flat site by lifting the quiet programs off the ground to float above the activity.  Service spaces are captured amongst a masonry plinth, nodding to the neighboring Chateau’s organization and rusticated base.   ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE These masses organize the primary public spaces into a double high core that connects seamlessly to the exterior.  When doors retract, the wood clad volume above becomes a canopy for indoor/outdoor living.   ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE ADAM ROUSE The language of the wood cladding...
