Frivolity is costly, and often, simple is best. The Warburg House, designed by Bioi, is a tribute to function and saliency in structure and form. Located in the wooded terrain of Alberta, Canada, the residence is a simple extrusion of the “house” pentagon, supported from the interior with two such steel frames painted in black as the house’s corrugated steel exterior. The no-frills design features a wooden deck that wraps around to connect a smaller log cabin, a younger cousin of the main house. Economy is essential, and for under $100,000 the Warburg House provides ample coziness from the cold snows of winter.
