This unusually composed house in the USA was designed by Chaewon Kim and Beat Schenk from UNI Company. It looks very simple and resembles three huge wooden boxes or some pieces of furniture put one onto another. Three rotated 16-by-22-foot boxes with four-corner-skylights give rooms natural light with minimum windows and maximum privacy. Each level is rotated in unusual way. The exterior is finished in marine plywood often used in ship-building. Oak plywood is also used in the interior of the second floor while the ground one is finished in marble. So being minimalist looking in the whole, XS house has a different look at each of the floors. One more interesting detail is the wooden stairs that threads through the space.
