Red House By Crosson Architects

Oct 29, 2018

Category: Living

The Red House by Crosson Architects is a beautifully simple, elegantly imagined, and brilliantly executed modular home. Crosson hoped the building might represent a departure from the conventional, opting for a compact, cost-effective layout over a more intricate design.

Nestled within the thick, lush forestry of the New Zealand countryside, the ample living space stands in stark contrast to its surrounding landscape, thanks to its deep red color and corrugated materials. The exterior of the structure is comprised of corrugated iron, which has been articulated both vertically and horizontally to give the pattern of the building some striking complexity. The home has a wide open living plan that includes a first and second level, both of which are compartmentalized through the use of translucent sliding walls and an interior bursting with natural wood. A wrapped and glazed skylight also adorns the upper level of Red House, working to provide a natural and bright connection to the surrounding foliage.
