Three Guesthouses

Three unfinished buildings. Adding field stone outside to insulate and new windows to break repetition. Play of color, light and shadow inside with shutters and textures.

A subtle/playful differentiation is made between the three buildings through the use of materials and colors. Ground floors are clad in local field stone similar to the dry stack stone walls in the surrounding landscape.

Three existing and partially completed buildings were left unfinished in their concrete frame for years. No volume alteration is allowed by local regulations.  Surface, depth and texture are the architectural tools.
Each upper façade has a slightly different hue responding to its orientation with new window openings.
Wooden shutters shield the rooms from the sun. In closed state they form a geometric paintings on the walls. Low cost and durable finishes were selected to withstand heavy use, paired with custom details and furniture.
