20Kv04 Pattern Book Home

Greensboro AL / 2008 / 5th Year & Outreach


In 2008, the Studio designed and built four houses. Each house studied a different structural system as well as expanding the palette of exterior cladding. The Pattern Book home uses stick frame construction; the roof is made of scissor trusses, allowing the gable form of the roof to be read in the interior volume. The home’s interior mimics that of 20Kv02 Frank’s Home, in which all of the social spaces of the home (living, dining, kitchen) are placed at the front of the house, while the bedroom is tucked in at the back of the house. Unlike Frank’s home, there are partitions enclosing the bathroom and bedroom. On the house’s exterior, cedar off-cuts from a local mill are used to create a rain screen cladding.
