A Farnsworth-inspired Weekend House on the Edge of a Volcano’s Crater

Mies van der Rohe's iconic house in Illinois has been the inspiration for many modern architects. That masterpiece, which was also intended as a vacation home, included walls of glass to look out onto the surrounding nature and ultimate simplicity inside (at least, in the architect's mind it did). While the home featured here may not ever reach the same levels of celebration as that national landmark, its inspiration is unmistakable. Architects from ATELIER ARS we commissioned to build this vacation home in Santa María del Oro, which edges a lake contained in the crater of a volcano. This type of landscape is certainly different from the plains of Illinois but the nature still begs for the same kind of sweeping views and calming design.
