ALTUS Architecture + Design has designed a new residence called Woodland House. Sited on a wooded plateau in Woodland, California, the United States, the house, completed in 2014, consists of three wood clad wings that are connected by glass entry links.
The placement of the wings of the house creates an arrival courtyard complimented by a free-standing “mystery object”.
The exterior composition of the house is dark-stained cedar wood and glass with a stone base and fireplace composed of bluestone. The finish of the wood siding is intended to blend in with the surrounding color of the bark of the trees on the site while the detached out-building, or “shiny shed”, for storage is intended to be a foil or counterpoint to the house that dissolves into the woods by fragmented reflections of the surroundings.
