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!

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

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.
