With a catchy name like the Empty Nester Residence hinting to a serene atmosphere, this modern small home makes its presence known in the neighborhood with a sleek wooden architecture imagined by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture. Spreading over 222 square meters, the home known as the Empty Nester Residence is located in Arlington, Virginia. This home brings inspiration for those looking for small-scale homes to inhabit once the family home where kids grew up feels rather empty and nostalgic.

Designed for “an “empty-nester” couple downsizing to a smaller residence now that their children have grown“, the modern small home stretches over only 2,400 square feet. This is more then neighboring homes usually measure, so “the most contextually appropriate massing for the new house was to work with the “pill-box” typology of the original structure.”

Photographs by Hoachlander Davis Photography / Anice Hoachlander present this warm and inviting suburb home dressed in a wooden skin. This was the owner’s choice, as wood is know for its visually and functionally warm features. After having been constructed by a local builder using “builder-level detailing and common materials and framing“, the eye-catching contemporary small home gives a new perspective to couples who enjoy a relaxed living.

We also presented the Watershack in Studio Twenty Seven Architecture’s portfolio, an old shack replaced with a contemporary weekend retreat, maybe you’d like to take a look and tell us what you think.

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.

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
