Description:

The architecture & interiors of this new home design by Garret Cord Werner represents a high quality of new construction on a modest budget.

Forest-House-01

The home was built for $280 per sq/ft in 2011. Over 20 ft. high concrete walls frame the dramatic entry into the home that features a floating open riser staircase. The home was designed to maximize light & to make one feel as much a part of the forest surrounding the home as possible.

Forest-House-02

Oversized sliding glass doors & clear story windows are used to reinforce this inside-out relationship to the garden. Upstairs, a signature feature of our work is what we call a sky garden.

Forest-House-03

This is an exterior garden that is enclosed & open to the sky. It does not count in our floor area calculations & provides a private green space & a wonderful light filled experience that is not expected on an upper floor.
