Flowers Mill, Blaine County, Idaho.
Design Phase 1995.
A large residence of approximately 14000 square feet in Flowers Mill, a residential community
near the Bigwood River. The clients requested that a house be designed using traditional log
construction but which would also reflect and house a large collection of modern sculpture
and paintings. The design solution sets up a collision of geometry and metaphor, of traditional
and modern concepts. The diagram is based on a 15 degree axis over a 90 degree
grid which is predicated on view corridors, sun angles and land contours. The architectural and site geometry suggest an homage to Native American diagrams and Russian Constructivism.
