Artist Residence and Atelier by Modust Architects

View all 9 Photos

Clearly, this building has an incredible level of self confidence. Protruding out of a hillside in Castelrotto, Italy the Kostner Estate by Modus Architects instantly grabs your attention. The lower levels stand casted in a “V” shaped frame which adds a beautiful artistry like no other home. Its pattern lifts the home off the ground in a majestic pose. The glass walls behind this timber frame allow for unobstructed views throughout these gathering areas, also constantly connecting them to the surrounding town carrying on just a glance away. In the upper levels privacy is maintained as every detail is composed of larch wood showing a great deal of craftsmanship combining a light frame construction system with a CLT construction system. The L-shape layout pronounces the distinction from the owner’s studio and living quarters for the rest of his family connected by a spiral staircase.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
