Located in Richfield, Wisconsin. Fieldstone House by Bruns Architecture is an example of modern living sinuously integrated within a rural landscape. The project gets its name from he fieldstone wall which organizes circulation beginning south of the entry, continuing through the interior spaces and extending back out to the north. Two volumes make up the project: a taller one housing the living zones and a smaller, flat-roofed structure on the field side where the auxiliary spaces are situated.

Paying tribute to minimalism, the interior design scheme redirects attention towards the surrounding landscape. Extensive use of glass throughout allows natural light inside, while enhancing textures. A board-formed concrete chimney acts as the focal point of the open plan living room, engaging both levels. According to the architects, the house has low-e, argon filled triple pane glazing throughout and radiant heat is utilized within polished concrete floor slabs on both levels. Enjoy the virtual tour!

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
