Stripped House Design: Mod Cott by Matt Lawrence
This quirky lakeside house by architecturalpolka has been awarded for its originality three times in 2010 by the Texas Society of Architects Design, the AIA Austin, and the Residential Architect Grand Design Award. The design of this house can be described as stripped architecture because its very simplistic and modern and that is why its Mod Cott. All possible tricks are used for economy and efficiency – there are large solar panels on the roof, rain collectors, and sustainable materials too – the construction is mostly of steel and wood. This is the greenest house indeed. But even with all those advantages many internet users found this home a bit too cold and unfriendly for its cold concrete floors and gloomy gray colors.
