I knew nothing about architecture. Here’s how I designed a house.

The house I designed viewed at dawn

The Purpose

The skylight above the study area

The Process

Some vegetation on the exterior wood paneling
The initial drafts of the house
A colored pencil sketch
The revolving glass entrance door
The house in morning fog
The final house in wireframe view
The floor plan (there’s only one level)

The Architects
