I'll be posting this one on my page. I'm hoping I can ride by there and see it one day. First, more credit needs to go to the builders of the Loblolly. I'm an architect, and without a contractor as an equal partner, you can't move projects this off paper and out into the world KT has produced something special here, but they were part of a larger team that also deserves recognition. Looks quite nice.

I agree that the round pilings look out of place on a house that is made up of so many right angles. That concept will be a harder sell inland where folks love their basements. Most of the impact to the ground below is coming from the septic system I'd wager.1stclass-ltd.com/wp-content/torrent/1783-handy-spiele-zu.php
Loblolly House, Taylors Island - Maryland House - e-architect
Another hard sell to the local homeowner association will be the unique look of the side elevation. I think this is a very lovely piece of work. In fact, the Eamses substantially redesigned their own iconic case study house when Ray decided that she liked the meadow portion of their property too much to build on it. They went back to the drawingboard and reconfigured the house, using only the parts they had already ordered.
This is the legend, at least. I am wondering what reconfigurations of this kit of parts might look like. I spotted the Eames lounger too. You should know by now that those are just set dressing by the photographer. I saw Timberlake lecture a few months ago, and this house is by far the most interesting project in their current portfolio.

It's very interesting that the interior photo includes those beautiful Eames chairs, since the idea of "Kit of Parts" in architecture, if i'm not mistaken, comes from them. It's like a modern-day well, like 40 years more modern Eames House. Very unique, site specific design. Not particularly into the telephone pole supports--they give an unfinished and cheap look to an otherwise elegant structure. I've read about the highly modular and component driven method used for this prefab.
Very impressive. Anyone on the team care to elaborate on using Revit for the process? We first got excited about Kieran Timberlake Associates' Loblolly House over a year ago, when it was still just the promising conceptual brainchild of the Philadelphia-based firm. The Loblolly House has since been completed AND featured in the January issue of Wired as one of seven "green and high-tech" projects , and demonstrates a truly unique approach to prefab and an eye-catching aesthetic to boot.
Prefab Loblolly House Redefines New Architecture
Named for the tall pine trees native to the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland site, the Loblolly House represents a non-traditional, component-based approach to prefab construction, in which a "kit-of-parts," much like in automotive assembly, can be unbolted and rebuilt in different configurations for a different site or house. These "Elements of Architecture," as KTA calls them, range in size and function, from the prefab room modules to the aluminum frame, green roof, and coffered floor system.

The west wall is an adjustable, double-glazed system made up of interior accordion-style folding glass doors and exterior polycarbonate-clad hangar doors that provide an adjustable awning as well as weather and storm protection.
This method of construction confronts both how we assemble our architecture, as well as how we assume responsibility for its disassembly. Just as the components are assembled simply, so are they disassembled easily, and most importantly, with materials left intact. Instead of the stream of construction waste that winds up in landfills today, this house poses a far more extensive agenda of recycling and wholesale reclamation.
It is a vision in which our architecture can be disassembled at some future moment, and relocated or reassembled in new ways from reclaimed parts. Interiors: Marguerite Rodgers, Ltd.
