About

“Modern architecture, taken in a new direction.”

“A feat of engineering in residential construction.”

“Wow. What a spectacular view.”

“Looking through the enormous walls of glass, it genuinely feels like the forest becomes part of the living space.”

Angle House is a strikingly modern vacation home perched high in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  The home is located in the Massanutten Resort and features walls of glass offering panoramic views of the Massanutten Valley, ski resort and golf course.  The home is available for rent on a daily or weekly basis.

Angle House was conceived and built by Michael Gorman in 2017.  Our design team was led by acclaimed architects Felipe Turriago-Borrero, Al Hansen, and Geoff Lewis.  The home was designed as a prototype utilizing cutting-edge, innovative and environmentally-friendly building technologies.  Such innovations include use of structural insulated panels (SIPs), an engineered steel foundation, and high-efficiency windows and walls.

The home, which hangs over a steep incline, is supported by a grid of 12 steel columns embedded in deep concrete footers, the largest of which is 30 feet high.  The home’s 40 foot deck is cantilevered 8 feet out from the foundation, providing spectacular views of the Massanutten Valley.

Angle house is located 20 minutes outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia, 2.25 hours from Washington DC, 3 hours from Baltimore, and 2 hours from Richmond.
