Topo Residence by Johnsen Schmaling Architects:

“Located in Wisconsin’s “driftless region”, a landscape of softly rolling hills, the house develops its type out of the site’s distinct topography. The plan is organized in 2 parallel bars that type a low-slung volume and shift towards each and every other to create protected outside rooms, patios, and courtyards.

The building’s roof is a meticulously detailed ribbon that peels itself up from the ground and extends the adjacent fields as a green carpet above the decrease portion of the property.

From right here, the folding roof plane slowly rises more than the upper bar and turns into a dramatic cantilever guarding the vista terrace from the aspects. The facade is composed of a technique of wood boards and CNC-milled aluminum battens whose shifting geometry subverts the volumetric purity of the home itself.”
