While we at Fine Homebuilding have earned a reputation for publishing small, practical, high-performance houses built with a certain level of craftsmanship, we regularly get excited about the esoteric, edgy, more-sculpture-than-home, utterly impractical stuff we see all over Instagram and in numerous design blogs. We created the editor’s choice award so that we could publish at least one of these types of homes each year. Enter Maine design/build firm GO Logic, who proves again and again that practical and high-performance on the one hand, and edgy and surprising on the other, are not mutually exclusive. Case in point: this exceptional contemporary home that earned Matt O’Malia and Gunther Kragler our editor’s choice award. Congratulations, guys! Watch the video here for more information.
