Alchemy Architects, home of the weeHouse | Marfa

Architecture from south hi res

The house serves as a simple retreat space for the fairly remote site outside the small arts colony in West Texas. It is the first of three weeHouse modules that are planned for the site.

The module arrived complete with an outdoor shed and a fully finished high-end interior and exterior, leaving only utility hookups, decks and sun-shielding canopies installed on-site. This house maximizes a small footprint by using the exterior decks and opening vistas to the landscape.

Materials include:
• oxidized steel paint on “Container” siding
• fir floors and walls
• Duravit and Kohler fixtures
• solar panels planned for electrical supply and shading

Location: Marfa, Texas, USA
Architect: Alchemy Architects, home of the weeHouse
Living Area: 600 sfq
Project Year: 2006
