TD by Region

Because we design, deliver, and assemble homes all over the world, we launched our TD by Region series, taking you to projects in some of our favorite places.  Take a look below to see where we have stopped so far, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see where we go next.

 

Gambier Island, British Columbia

Gambier Island House

The Gambier Island House in British Columbia, based on our TD3 2490 and modified to suit its challenging site, is perched on a steep hillside of fir trees on a remote island overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Special delivery: we shipped the materials directly to the site by barge. See more of this project here

Mountain View, California

Silicon Valley House

We’re taking you to the heart of Silicon Valley. This rendering of a modified courtyard house we designed for a young family in Mountain View, California realizes a hallmark of our designs—creating a natural flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. Expansive glass doors open the living room to an airy courtyard, flooding the interior with natural light. 

Atlanta, Georgia

Serenbe House

We’re coming to you from Chattahoochee Hills, GA, where our Serenbe House was featured on Atlanta Design Festival’s MA! Architecture Tour in May of 2018. This energy-efficient home in the sustainable Serenbe community is built to EarthCraft House Program standards and features an inclined butterfly roof that harvests rainwater for on-site irrigation to dramatic effect.

Palisades, New York

Palisades House

We’re heading to the East Coast for a pit stop in Palisades, New York, a hamlet just west of the Hudson River and 25 miles north of New York City. The stunning post-and-beam structure is highlighted throughout the design, which also features a deck, roof deck, and an array of expansive windows—all oriented to maximize the views of this dramatic site. Moving inside, the exposed beams and wood-burning stone fireplace bring natural warmth and texture to the bright, open living space. 

West Vancouver, British Columbia

West Vancouver House

The West Vancouver house was designed to maximize abundant rainfall—gathering rain water and funneling it into a Zen garden below. The result is a custom wood-clad home with carefully considered angles and beautiful, clean lines. See more of this project here.

Santa Rosa, California

In Progress

This modified Axiom 2650 we’ll be delivering and assembling on a site in Santa Rosa that was consumed by the Northern California Firestorm, is fresh out of the schematic design phase—a first step in our simple, predictable process that offers a solution our clients can count on. Because of our prefabricated system and refined design process, we know how long it will take and what it will cost to deliver a high-quality home, designed specifically for this site. If you or someone you know are looking for a simpler way to rebuild—send us a note here.

 

Columbia Valley, British Columbia

Windermere House

We’re heading to the Windermere House we designed in Columbia Valley, British Columbia. Looking out to peaceful views of its picturesque setting, this post-and-beam house boasts soaring rooves and is clad with a unique combination of cedar-wood siding and bluestone veneer on the main level, and standing seam metal panels on the upper level. See more of this project here.

Shelter Island, New York

Shelter Island House

This week’s #tdbyregion takes us to Shelter Island, New York. We designed this custom, multi-general family home on an island that can only be reached by ferry, private boat, or seaplane—making prefab and its efficient delivery the optimal choice. The airy great room—ideal for large family gatherings—completely opens up to the natural beauty of the island through large accordion doors and clerestory windows, letting natural light stream into the space.
