SHILLINGTON RESIDENCE

Flowers Mill, Blaine County, Idaho.
Design Phase 1995.

A large residence of approximately 14000 square feet in Flowers Mill, a residential community near the Bigwood River.  The clients requested that a house be designed using traditional log construction but which would also reflect and house a large collection of modern sculpture and paintings. The design solution setsup a collision ofgeometry and metaphor, of traditional and modern concepts.  The diagram is based on a 15 degree axis over a 90 degree grid which is predicated on view corridors, sun angles and land contours.  The architectural and site geometry suggest an homage to Native American diagrams and Russian Constructivism.
