First popularized for their simple design and affordable cost, today’s A-Frame houses are finding renewed interest with design modifications that expand them out—and up. We’ve always loved the simplicity of an A-frame. The structure is what you would think- an A-shaped, triangular home that is open and airy all the way to the rafters. They’re relatively simple to construct and seem to work so well as woodsy getaways. Are you a fan of A-frame interiors or architecture? Share your thoughts with us in the comments or on Twitter!

Featuring a sleek and modern look, this house on Fire Island, New York has been elevated from a seasonal beach rental to a stunning retreat with help from Bromley Caldari Architects. The 1960’s A-frame was recreated but in a more modern way. The glass walls completely open up the interior which is also gorgeous and customized with sleek details.

Updating the A-frame of yore, this home’s liberal use of windows makes the most of panoramic views spanning two valleys in Catalonia, Spain. Architect Preston Scott Cohen resurrected an early 1800s barn as a vacation home for a literary couple and their family in Pine Plains, New York, calling to mind both the agrarian spaciousness of the structure’s former life and the vernacular of its new function as a house. Transcending both, Cohen created a piece of architecture that is at once porous and opaque, familiar yet otherworldly.

Designer Jens Risom returns to his 1967 prefab off the coast of Rhode Island, readying it for his family’s next generation. A bright-yellow “R” sign, from a truck that used to deliver furniture from Jens Risom Design, sets off the southern facade. When Jens designed the house, he stipulated that he wanted cedar shingles, not the asphalt ones that came with the original design from the catalog. Photo by Floto + Warner.
