Austin-based architecture and design studio Andersson Wise has completed the Tower House project in 2008.
“In considering an addition to the original stone lodge at this Lake Travis property in Texas, USA, the notion of a tower was born out of several factors: taking advantage of views, minimizing the footprint on the site, and accommodating the rising flood plain elevation.”
Lewis Butler, principal of San Francisco-based studio Butler Armsden Architects, designed the Yolo Cabin for his parents.
Located in Winters, a lush farming town nestled in the Sacramento Valley, California, this modern farmhouse is composed of two sections, a tall water tower, and a lower lean to area.

Anu Puustinen and Ville Hara from Helsinki-based studio Avanto Architects have designed this contemporary cabin for themselves.
Located in Virrat, a small town in Finland 170 miles away from Helsinki, this 839 square-foot black and white cabin has no running water nor electricity.
Heated only with wood stoves, far from the city noise, the cabin offers restful tranquility and relaxed pace of life with a minimum impact on its environment.
