Item Details
The Ha-Smith House designed by Eugene Stoltzfus Architects’ located in Harrisonburg, Virginia were inspired by a young couple with one child and with contemporary ideas for efficient living with few possessions. They were explicit in requesting a modern, refined aesthetic of concrete and glass construction. The client’s values and requests, lined up so well with Eugene Stoltzfus Architects’ values and strengths, that the house almost designed itself. In addition to efficient space values, the request for concrete and glass included a desire for sustainable passive and active solar design.

The elemental elegance of Eugene Stoltzfus’s objects reflects the natural beauty and strengths inherent in their materials. The final distilled form of each object reveals itself at the nexus of the contributing essentials: the qualities of the materials, the functional requirements, the perception of the forces at play, the machine and fabrication characteristics, and the unexpected opportunities that present themselves during the iterative design process.
