We learned of Marlon Blackwell through photos of his own "L-Stack" home (shown above), which won a 2008 AIA award. Based in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the architect designs modern houses that take advantage of the gorgeous southern landscape. Checking out his site, we were impressed by the originality of the buildings: a modernist tower in the middle of a forest, a honeycomb house for a beekeeper. Click below for links and more photos...
In this barn conversion, glass and metal siding transform the facade into a work of art. It sits on 8 acres above a river bluff.
This home in Fayetteville, dubbed the Keenan Towerhouse, soars 80 feet into the air. The upper floors have 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape, and there's a skydeck at the top of the tower.
This structure was built for a beekeeper in North Carolina. It combines workspace with a honeycomb-patterned glass display wall.
