myMarvin Architect's Challenge: Lamson/West ResidenceBy Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
John Senhauser, FAIA of John Senhauser Architects in Cincinnati, designed a beautiful home, also in Cincinnati. The Lamson/West Residence is a modern log home, built on a beautiful wooded site. As beautiful as the site was, the trees made it a challenging project.
Senhauser ended up designing the host to respect the land it was on. One unique feature of the home is that it bridges 40 feet across a creek to preserve the natural drainage pattern. And there’s a very green roof–grass as a matter of fact.
Walls are from local cypress and a wall of windows lets light flood the Lamson/West Residence.
Besides all the house’s green features, it is beautiful, well-designed, livable and one of the winners of the myMarvin Architect’s Challenge.
The Lamson/West Residence featured clad casements, awning windows, Ultimate French Doors and picture units with Simulated Divided Lites and spacer bars from Marvin Windows and Doors.
