Images Description Credits
Originally built in 1959, the Thompson Mosley House serves as an exquisite example of Buff Straub and Hensman’s early “post and beam” residences. The house is organized around a central linear volume which spans the width of the site; while the living, sleeping, and family room programs bridge perpendicularly into different segments of the front and rear landscape. The exterior renovation strategy is underpinned by a mindful restoration of the perimeter envelope of the original wood post and beam structure. On the interior more liberties are taken, allowing the core elements which bridge the central spine of the house to be intensively reconfigured and reappointed. Within this zone several new “functional fragments” operate between the scales of the architectural envelope and decorative furnishing. These custom built elements are spatially deployed to stitch the various programs of the house together and encourage visual connections through the architecture into the landscape beyond.
