Small & Spectacular Family Home Open Towards a Peaceful Rural Landscape

Corum Residence was designed by Substance Architecture and is a display of modern living at its best. The only aspect that differentiate this house from the majestic residences we commonly display on Freshome is this project´s dimensions. Here is more from the architects: This modest, single family residence on a four acre site was designed for a family looking to downsize their domestic lives. The resulting home expresses itself and gestures beyond — to the rural Iowa landscape. The elemental design consists of a galvanized metal clad tube gently resting on a cast-in-place concrete plinth and pointed toward the view. The home´s simple form and materials reference agricultural buildings prevalent in the central United States.The more-public living spaces have direct access to the view. The private bed and bath functions are sequestered deep within the metal-clad wedge and concrete plinth. Internally, the home utilizes a system of maple and acrylic shelving, an open-riser stair, and a fireplace mass to vertically organize the section and link its three levels.
