Butterfly Studio / Valerie Schweitzer Architects


Inspired by the shape of a butterfly when it closes its wings, Valerie Schweitzer Architects’ Butterfly Studio is a sculptural detached office full of cleverly placed windows that target views toward the yard rather than the main house for a sense of privacy and seclusion. Set in the backyard of a home in Westport, Connecticut, the design recently won an American Architecture Prize in the small architecture category — via Urbanist
