Pisgah Mountain Museum

Proposal 

 

Connecting to the surrounding context the 

observatory serves as a place to view and 

study local wildlife and surrounding landscape.

 

AREA: 6,000 SF

4 Corners Cabin Dwelling

Concept Study 

Cedar "Timber", Concrete

Study 

 

The program revolves around a central open garden space, the functions of the home are split into 4 equal quadrants each defining a use for the occupant.

All components spill into a light filled open gathering space, a "Hearth" at the middle.

The roof is fully occupiable for 360 views

to the surrounding mountain ranges.

The Cruciform circulation space will allow for natural cross ventilation and passive air flow between the 4 solid volumes.

will be used as well as PV panel and

water actuation for this small scale build.

Historic treatment of torched cedar to

provide for the exterior cladding.

"Uprooted" Monolith

Concept Study
