The Nested House is a guest house for a client in Houston. The brief was to provide an outdoor space for entertaining, along with a pool, spa, and sauna. We decided to “nest” the sauna within successive layers of material: first the wood of the sauna, then the tiled surface of the bathroom/sauna/closet volume, then the wood cladding of the patio area, then the metal exterior skin. The result is a building that becomes softer the further into it you move.
