  Collaboration | Terry Kleinberg | 2010    Pennsylvania Lake House   The design of this minimalist lakeside cabin was driven by the client's desire for a modern interpretation of the "Lake House". Driven by efficient, cost effective design practices, we employed locally sourced, sustainable materials and construction standards. The process resulted in a distilled refinement of architectural simplicity appropriate to the surrounding natural landscape.

  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.
