Marfa Home – a refined collection of volumes that overlooks the desert landscape

This residence has been designed as a vacation home for a young family and their guests. The home is conceived as one continuous space with no interior walls that is connected by a deep porch that looks out onto the expansive West Texas landscape. This porch both frames the view and provides shelter from the harsh Texas sun. The main house volume is further broken up into four structural units constructed of glulam wooden beams and columns at varying heights. Each space is contained by the expanding and contracting roof above and is programatically defined by different architectural elements. One moves seamlessly between the kitchen, living, and sleeping areas.
