United States. A traditional parametric house

Nestled in the natural landscape of the Ossipee Lake, this modern cottage by Scalar Architecture is a complex prism with a high passive environmental efficiency.

Scalar Architecture, Anker-Jordan Residence, Ossipee Lake, United States, 2017

Nestled in a peninsula on Ossipee Lake, New Hampshire, the 280 sqm cottage is formed by two conjoined prisms that provide a singular resolution to a wide range of functions and concerns. Among these concerns are passive climate responses, adaptability for multi-generational living, and deference towards the spectacular surrounds - including the lake, forests, and White Mountains range beyond.

Using a process of adaptive computational design, the architect developed an elemental prism that maximizes interior volume while affording a high passive environmental efficiency and minimum impact on the site. The folded roof simultaneously negotiates the southern exposure, the northern views, the management of rain and snow precipitation, and the summer westerly winds. The interior of the prism is articulated as interconnected cells that afford a complex landscape of social interaction.
