800 sq. ft. house.

Orr House

asked by the client, "what will my house be in 200 years?", we proceeded to make a home that integrated with the site - stepping with  the slope; used space efficiently - making a house that felt larger than its actual size with every interior space expanding into an adjacent outdoor space; and utilized sustainable strategies - partial straw bale construction, solar radiant floors, natural light,  a living sod roof, and environmentally conscious materials (ie. bamboo, straw board, fly ash concrete).  the message being to live beautifully - simply.
