Project name: Zigzag House
Project location: Falmouth, Maine
Firm name: Reverse Architecture
Jury comments: Using local materials, passive heating and cooling, and a striking roofline for shade, this single-family house is clean and unfussy, not banal. Riffing on the concept of a meandering path, the interior circulation reveals unexpected views, materials, and daylight as people move through the space. A perforated entry roof provides delightful, dappled light.
