Koby Cottage

AIA/NYS Design Merit Award 2010

Chicago Athenaeum American Architecture Award, 2010

Koby Cottage was designed for a boarding school for troubled teens to allow families to visit with their child in a private domestic setting surrounded by nature. The 1,100 sf cottage consists of two modules raised and separated for light, space and privacy. The space between the modules is enclosed with glass. The cottage plan has an 'X' form. The dining table is situated at the structure’s crossing, creating a place for rejoining and discussion.

Koby is the first building constructed using the KFS (Kullman Frame System), an extremely strong and efficient modular space frame system consisting of hollow tubular steel and allowing large cantilevers and window openings. Koby is a prototype structure of a system designed for the construction of multi-story modular buildings — its tubular steel space frame has the unique capacity to achieve heights of twelve stories using a patented connection system that minimizes field finishing and speeds the overall construction process.
Koby features a high level of craftmanship and detail as well as number of high performance components.
