Sylvan Retreat: textured wood structure with a green roof


Pleated House is a sylvan retreat designed by Milwaukee firm Johnsen Schmaling Architects. Description by Johnsen Schmaling: The client, an empty-nester couple, wanted an unassuming retreat that would defer to the surrounding forest. In response, the architects designed a simple rectangular volume notched by a tapering forecourt and a patio directly opposite.
