the ’round mountain house’ by american studio demx architecture references surrounding vernacular structures to help it integrate with the ozark mountain landscape in arkansas. the arched roof mimics local barn construction found in the area, while the form itself is divided into two separate elements to serve its different areas. the main frame consists of the public functions such as the carport, outdoor breezeway, guest loft, and the main living area, and the lean to or ‘saddle bag’ portion contains the more private quarters – the laundry, bathrooms, closets, and bedrooms.

the form refers to local barn profiles and volumes

 

 

the volume has been constructed using a steel frame and concrete foundation walls, with energy efficient panels that wrap around the exterior and roof of both parts of the mass. incorporating sustainable passive technologies throughout, operable windows allow for cross ventilation and a balcony on the western side of the house has a large overhang that sellers the living space from the direct sunlight.
