Furches House: Murray, Kentucky, 1968

Built in a woods, the Furches House is built in a compact, four story form for economy. It has a glassed-in main entrance and stair tower up to the roof. The roof is a terrace adjacent to a small penthouse which can be used as a study or guest room. Natural ventilation is puled through the glass-faced stair tower. The lowest level has four small sleeping alcoves and a playroom for children. Living, dining and kitchen are on the main level with two bedrooms on the third level. At each level the clients are aware of surrounding trees. The rough-sawn cypress boards and battens of the exterior provide a sympathetic texture while the two-story glass expresses the two-story interior living area. One of the owners teaches art at a nearby university and requested that the interior be finished in the same rough sawn cypress to use as a background for the display of art and crafts. The clients requested that their house have an animation similar to the Greene Prairie House.
