This is a contemporary farmhouse by Olson Kundig Architects. Built in Northeast Oregon, this small house using glass as the main material of the wall. It has shaped like half barn in the Pacific Northwest and inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House. This house is facing to the south where you can see the mountains views. It also has adapted to the winter and summer season. When the winter come this house offers passive solar heat gain from the low-angled winter sun, while when summer come it offers roof overhangs and a light shelf to block the high hot summer sun from entering. For the air circulation, the house has big operable window that provide cross-ventilation cooling. The Interior is cool when it summer, but it looks to cold when winter comes. Here are some photos of this contemporary glass farmhouse.
