It was completed by Johnsen Schmaling Architects.
Topo Home by Johnsen Schmaling Architects:
“Located in Wisconsin’s “driftless region”, a landscape of softly rolling hills, the house develops its kind out of the site’s distinct topography. The program is organized in 2 parallel bars that type a low-slung volume and shift against every single other to produce protected outdoor rooms, patios, and courtyards.
The building’s roof is a meticulously comprehensive ribbon that peels itself up from the ground and extends the adjacent fields as a green carpet more than the lower portion of the residence.
From right here, the folding roof plane slowly rises in excess of the upper bar and turns into a dramatic cantilever defending the vista terrace from the elements. The facade is composed of a method of wood boards and CNC-milled aluminum battens whose shifting geometry subverts the volumetric purity of the home itself.”Diagram
