Contemporary Home Embedded in Nature: the Harkavy Residence

The contemporary Harkavy residence was designed by Us architect Robert Gurney and is located in Potomac, Maryland, USA. Found on HomeDSGN, the residence stretches over an area of 2,900 square feet and is oriented towards the forest. Here is a short description from the architects. The sequence of entry is defined by a series of walls, intended to privatize and delineate the approach and entry into the house. The walls, garage volume and house become a threshold between the road and the wooded parkland. The house is composed of three volumes articulated with varying roof forms.  A two-story wood volume anchors the composition. A butterfly-shaped roof is employed to open views southward and sloped to funnel rainwater into a collection system. With simple forms rendered in sensory materials, the house becomes a small part of the larger landscape, providing a place to witness trees changing colors, fog rolling in from the not too distant Potomac River and deer herds wandering to the edge of the woods.
