ARKANSAS HOUSE
Johnson, Arkansas (2004)

The challenge for the Arkansas House was to reassemble a fire-damaged home and introduce possibilities for transforming the house’s spatial character. The low-slung tartan grid structure of the existing house is instilled with a new sense of hierarchy through the addition of Cor-ten clad light monitors and suspended lofts to the children’s spaces, a new kitchen, and a great room with a saddle-back roof for living, entertaining, and the display of fine art. The monitors bring much-needed light through steel windows into the once gloomy interiors. Naturally lit from all sides, the great room is positioned to unite the family in one grand social space. There is a quiet resonance between old and new spaces, enveloped in the warmth of various American hardwoods — they combine for a new material presence that softens their differences. Out of the ashes, a new structure emerges, a history continues; the old is transformed in the shadow of the new.
