The mysterious design behind the high pitched roof and wrapped in brown Haus Stollen keeps many secrets. Among them….somehow the rain gutters are concealed. They have adjusted the roof to host a large divot, which collects the water and passes it down to the ground by hidden plumbing. A temping reservoir for nearby pasture animals is wrapped in timber and neatly placed at the furthest end of a generously covered patio. We bite our lips and look at each other in curiosity. Could it be related? This project executed by Morger Dettli Architeckten.

I find a way to fearlessly provoke your senses and take you by the heart to whatever it is I’m writing about. My sweet spot is creative writing, but for the last 20 years I have been providing freelance content for publications on sustainability and green practices, design, architecture, fashion, and non-profit charity. Recently all wrapped up in producing my first book. I have bounced from NYC to Indianapolis, but my true home is a lovely small town in Central Pennsylvania where there’s a legit drive-your-tractor-to-school-day.
