Mask House | WOJR
Mask House was designed by WOJR not only to be a home but to be a refuge for a man who mourns the loss of his brother. The design is set to hide un-intrusively amongst the woods of Northern New York. It will overlook the lake in which his brother was lost. WOJR has said that they wanted to create a sanctuary to be "a place of separation and protection that removes one from the world of the everyday and offers passage to an other world".
Massachusetts-based firm, WOJR is a collective of designers who consider architecture to be a form of cultural production. Their work reaches out across the globe and engages the realms of art, architecture and urbanism. WOJR isn't just about building four walls but about creating something that conjures up feelings by the spaces that surround you. This rings most true for Mask House.
