Beautiful Houses: The Small House in Massachusetts
Fri, 12/30/2011 - 13:42
The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
The small house is a project by Maryann Thompson Architects and is located in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, USA. Conceived as a modest one-room cabin, the house packs a kitchen, living, dining areas and two sleeping alcoves into just 750-sf; a 500-sf screened porch and sleeping loft create a thick threshold between inside and out. Wrapped in Western Red Cedar inside and out, the structure seems to recede into the landscape. From the outside, the house dialogs respectfully with the landscape. On the interior, the cedar frames and reinforces the woodland setting.
After showcasing a lot of huge houses I decided to close the year with a small, cozy and beautiful cabin. A place that is a mix between a tree house and a peaceful fairy tale cabin. I wish all of you a great 2012! ;)

We found this house at Freshome.
