The owners of Chicken Point Cabin and their two young children bought the waterfront property—located half an hour from their house in northern Idaho—in order to build a lakeside cabin. Their intent was to be able to use the house year-round, but especially during the summer, when the local weather can get oppressively hot. Their only directive to Tom was simple: make the house as open to the water as possible. Tom’s response to this challenge was as direct as the request: a large pivoting picture window on the waterside that literally opens up to the landscape. “Little house, big window,” in Tom’s words.

The tilted frame of the house by Budi Pradono Architects was designed as an antithesis to the status homes and mock-European styling of a gated community in Jakarta, Indonesia. The 320-square-metre house called Rumah Miring, or Slanted House, sits on an eight- by 20-metre plot in Pondok Indah, a gated community established in the south of the city in the 1970s and 1980s.

Three old barns were converted to a mid-century modern home in the 1950’s by Henry Hoover, a prolific architect that built many modern homes in Lincoln MA. In 1990 parts of the house were renovated to create an eclectic facade and gallery with a sculptural kitchen and entry. Twenty-four years later the house is undergoing another transformation by us that clarifies the architectural lineage of the original structures and the Hoover design.

The design aims to provide a more closed off ground level to offer privacy from the neighbors, while at the same time allowing enough transparency to enjoy views of the McDowell Mountains.
