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.

The Roost house is beautiful on the inside....NOT on the outside. Brett Sichello is correct. It reflects Lebbeus Woods'ideas much more than Corbu or Calatrava. Anthony Genova Architect/Carpenter
I know this is terrible, but who wants to take bets on when it falls over? I have never been, but I would assumed winds in the Highlands are fierce, no? It is lovely but just, to me, feels .. off. Anyone else? :)
How is it meant to be autonomous? Of course my emails correct it's MY EMAIL!!
Corn, Calatrava???? This has Lebbeus Woods influence bursting from its seams!
