Heads House in Goshen

Heads House

Architects: SILO AR+D

Location: Goshen, Arkansas, United States of America

Heads House derives its name from a series of sculptural heads created by the client’s father, Richard Staples Dodge, who was a painter and sculptor. Many of these cardboard heads, with their playful often triangulated shapes, have adorned the client’s houses over the past 50 years.

Compelled by the client’s story, the architecture acts as a memory device. The facades reference Dodge’s sculptural forms, which are stitched house’s together into a massive roof form.

Designed for the clients to age-in-place, the house is organized as two volumes—one long and low that contains the main living spaces and master suite, and a two-story volume containing the garage and guest rooms.

The gap between is the main entry. Once inside each space is defined by a unique vaulted ceiling to create implied “rooms” in an otherwise open plan with expansive views to the bucolic landscape. The material palette (metal, shake) and red color are borrowed from the utilitarian buildings that surround site, grounding the abstract form in its local context.

The exterior window walls are constructed from patio doors, sometimes ganged together to created larger expanses of glass. The interior palette is light and neutral, emphasizing the geometry of the interior volumes, and the ambient qualities of natural light.
