Project name: Cottage in Woods
Project location: Foster, Rhode Island
Firm name: 3six0 Architecture
The mass of this excellently sited cottage is cut in dramatic angles to shed water, protect an entry, and vent a vertical chimney. The continuity from exterior to interior is very exciting. Rooflines are mimicked inside to recreate the outside experience. There is crispness and simplicity in the materials. The interior plan is clever and sophisticated yet unpretentious, with a wonderful element of surprise in the sleeping nook, which is connected to a skylight by a 14′ pyramidal shaft. Many fine details elevate the space, which is flooded with light.
