The guest house matches the architectural materials of the clientâ€™s adjacent house. However, it keeps the simplicity of a barn style from the outside, leading into a complex structured interior.
Exposed hammer beam trusses, the porch under the deck, and the gable roof give the barn a complex character while maintaining a residential look as a secondary building.

Located in front of an existing chemical warehouse, the architectural purpose was to create a new three story office building that will also serve as a facade for the warehouse. The corridors along the curtain wall are illuminated by the stairwell that runs vertically through the entire building, which functions as the vertical light source. The main design elements are the curtain wall and shutters, created to take full advantage of the ample natural light.
