Silhouette Hytte House by @figr_architecture takes the existing house silhouette and extrudes it to create a 3-bedroom family home. While the traditional gable roof profile is simple in its form, the volumes internally are generous and giving. The materials are kept simple, with warm timbers against a white backdrop with hints of black to punctuate certain elements.⁠

The house has a fold in the rear elevation, done to navigate the neighbour's tree canopy. As a result, a much more dynamic facade is created, with it changing appearances from different vantage points.
