Mask House by WOJR

Research, Architecture, Interiors


The Mask House provides a place of refuge and contemplation for one who lost his younger brother in the lake that the house overlooks.

It is conceptualized as a space comprised of myriad sanctuaries – within the context of this project sanctuary is a place of separation and protection that removes one from the world of the everyday and offers passage to an other world.

The transition from everyday to other is drawn-out through a series of thresholds that define a scalar sequence of nested interior – each interior becoming successively more removed from one world and more connected to the next.

“It’s a bit academic, but it stands out in its purity of concept and image. It’s intriguing.”

—juror Barbara Bestor, AIA

The vertical plane of the mask establishes a boundary across the site that creates a condition of sidedness. Mask House endeavors to provide one in search of sanctuary an abundance of opportunities to find refuge within new interiors in dialogue with the surrounding environment.
