Allandale House – A Cabin of Curiosities
A-frame houses were popular in the fifties and sixties, and most of those houses look very old-fashioned. The Allandale House, designed by William O’Brien Jr, is one of the rare modern A-frame houses. Somehow this weird building fits perfectly in the idyllic green surroundings.
The house is designed as a vacation destination for an idiosyncratic connoisseur and her family. It provides space for an eccentric collection of artifacts that resist straightforward classification.
