With Seth Amman and James Brucz
A weekend house on a mountain-top in a remote area of the Smoky Mountains in Northern Georgia. The proposal was inspired by Michael Heizer's "Double Negative", quarrying technology, natural blue-stone formations in the region, and the remoteness of the site. The structure was based on the carving of the site, using typical diamond wire quarry technology. On the exposed blue-stone, a framework of pre-fabricated cor-ten steel tubes was proposed.
Scope: Design proposal, not built
Site: 2 acre mountain top site, Young Harris, GA; Gross Floor Area: 5000 SF
