SkyCottage is a progressive home whose design is informed by the view of the Mississippi River, embraces the challenges of a tight site, and enhances the community fabric of one of the earliest examples of New Urbanism.

The parti demonstrates an interest in abiding by the rules set forth in the neighborhood, yet also bending them as a response to the River. The result is the composition of two architectural volumes. A white-brick cube aligns itself with the established streetscape of rowhouses, and an elevated alloy-coated steel box resists this grid by transversing the cube in both directions, responding directly to the River view. Save this picture!Interior Save this picture!The house is a series of experiences that are directed by view and movement. The first floor has floor-to-ceiling glass that defines a combination of entry, patio and guestroom spaces. The visitor moves up and into the home’s living level, which reveals an intensely focused view of the River. Lastly, one ascends to the most private zone, the master suite. It includes a dramatic view of the River, a sweeping vista to the north, and a rare city view to the south. Save this picture!Green The design provides an extremely high ratio of green-space-to-buildable-area than is found elsewhere in the development. The home’s footprint consumes only 44% of this area. Open view sheds are maintained for neighboring homes and the casual passerby. SkyCottage is the first Tennessee residence designed and owned by an architect that has been submitted for LEED for Homes Certification.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessArt Museum / KSP Engel und Zimmermann ArchitektenArticlesCanada Pavillion for Shanghai Expo 2010Articles Share Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officearchimaniaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesMemphisUnited StatesPublished on July 30, 2009Cite: “SkyCottage / archimania” 30 Jul 2009.
