The beautiful Roost House designed by Benoit Challand is perched elegantly on stilts in the lush landscape of the Scottish Highlands. The multi-story house is elevated on stepped scaffolding to reference two architectural masters - Le Corbusier and Santiago Calatrava. The fantasy house is a self-sustaining oasis, intended to be not only beautiful, but also fully autonomous.
The Roost House’s angular scaffolds are meant to pay tribute to Santiago Calatrava’s sculptural architecture, while the design of the actual home references Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye and Cabanon. Both the exterior and interior of the home would be clad with planks of sustainable timber that meet floor-to-ceiling picture window walls, bringing the beauty of the Scottish Highlands into the home. The multi-level home would be accessible through a hidden zig-zagging staircase that leads from the valley floor to the first story of the home.
The fantastical house was designed to be installed anywhere, regardless of terrain.
