Modern Cedar House in Vermont Mountains
Kyu Sung Woo Architects – the brains behind iconic designs like the 1988 Olympics Athletes’ Village, the Asian Culture Complex in Gwangju, Korea, and a collection of cultural, museum and university structures – bring this cedar sided Putney Mountain House to Vermont. Set on the slope of the mountain, the site’s densely wooded terrain and striking, sweeping views are the inspiration behind this back-to-nature house design. Three separate volumes complement the landscape, arranged in a clearing with mountain views to the west and meadows to the south. The architects have brought a new, modern look to traditional Vermont architecture and building materials. Red cedar siding and corrugated steel panels form the facade, which is punctuated with wide windows and outdoor living areas. Interiors are minimal, with the focus on the view. In the kitchen and dining space, a sliding glass wall extends these well-used interiors into the great outdoors.
