2015 National Award
Detached Outbuilding


The exterior element for this submission is the timber framed parking pavilion. The Owners site was a steep ridge with no level surfaces to park cars. The clients needed parking for 4 cars. They were concerned that the covered parking structure would destroy the natural park-like setting and block the views through the trees to the nearby lake. The Owners also wanted the parking areas to be able to be used for family gatherings and reunions since the entire property is located on the top of a steep ridge. The Owners wanted the carport structure to use natural materials to compliment the main home and yet create something that would feel like it could be in a national park. The timber frame pavilions create a dramatic entrance feature for the custom home. The timber frame is open and airy and yet anchored by a strong natural stone base. The steep

pitched roofs match the steep pitch of the hillside on each side of the pavilions. Each of the timber frames is symmetrical by itself, symmetrical with the other pavilion and also symmetrical on the custom home. By duplicating the timber framed pavilion the architect created a balanced relationship between the two structures.
