Hammock House / Samsel Architects


Hammock House, near the Blue Ridge Mountains, was designed by Asheville-based Samsel Architects, the home stays true to its name, where, according to the studio, Hammocks and an ancient oak tree were the organising principle.

The old white oak helped to inform the home’s L-shaped layout (it’s growing roughly where the fourth corner would be) and the hammock takes centre stage in an enormous and airy screened porch. The house has a single-pitch shed roof inspired by local farm structures, and the interior was organised so that visitors walk through progressively taller and taller rooms until they reach the hammock — via Curbed
