Allandale House: A Cabin of Curiosities

I'm not sure if the fact that I'm posting these architecture-related posts lately means something, but I guess I always had a thing for beautifully formed spaces and structures.

This awesome house is by architect William O’Brien Jr., Assistant Professor of Architecture at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning, and it's located in Mountain West.

I love how the storage spaces are pretty much exposed, however, I am a bit intimidated by the huge windows, (imagine looking out those windows in the dark, in the middle of the mountains). 

Text from the architect's website:
Allandale House is an A-frame(s) house for an idiosyncratic connoisseur and her family. Along with its occupants, the Allandale House also provides space for an eccentric collection of artifacts that resist straightforward classification. Wines, rare books, stuffed birds and an elk mount are among the relics on display in this small vacation house.
