  Wind Breaker Fire Pit  in Argentina was built on site and in 1 weeks time with friend and colleague Ben Uyeda ( www.homemade-modern.com ).  We embraced bamboo's inherent tensile strength by lashing the 25' long poles together and stringing rebar "arches" through each to help form the fan-like passage.  The woven bamboo rods virtually support themselves while creating a dramatic procession through the brush to a sheltered fire pit.  All materials, including the bamboo were either gathered directly from the land or locally acquired.

  Associated work | Terry Kleinberg Architect | 2010    Pennsylvania Lake House   Vessel Studio collaborated with Lead Architect Terry Kleinberg on this weekend retreat.  The design of this modest lake house was driven by the client's desire for a modern interpretation of the local vernacular and a very strict budget and schedule.  Working with local construction standards and "off the shelf" ingredients, we distilled the traditional lake house into a clean, refined case study in detailing.
