Allandale House (A Cabin of Curiosities)
Architecture & Interiors
Be still, our modern-architecture-in-wooded-nature-shots-loving heart, yes, this is the most lovely of lovelies. This is a modern lover’s dream: a stunning piece of sleek architecture, heavily personalized for the family living within it and set into a quiet, idyllic setting that doesn’t even have to hardly try at all to inspire you to write that novel you’ve been putting off.
William O’Brien Jr. is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning and principal of an independent design practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts and looks entirely too young to be creating architecture that sets our heart to beating so quickly. He also wrote a ton about this amazing home on his website:
“Allandale House is an A-frame(s) house for an idiosyncratic connoisseur and her family. Along with its occupants, the Allandale House also provides space for an eccentric collection of artifacts that resist straightforward classification. Wines, rare books, stuffed birds and an elk mount are among the relics on display in this small vacation house.” Visit his portfolio for more photos and more words.
