The house started in a largely demolished state. In fact, from the outside, peeling concrete walls hide the intense renovations completed inside. The design attempts to harness the use of courtyards in a contemporary space. Surrounding the edges of the property, there is an 18 ft. wall. This keeps with the harmony of the surrounding properties, as it matches the height of other fences in the neighborhood.
Upon the roof, a glass cube presides over the temperature regulation of the house, and creates a calm and breezy space conducive to relaxation and lazy Sunday afternoons. The beauty of the home is in its beautiful balance. The architects weren’t arrogant in their rejection of the dominance of nature. Instead, they chose to incorporate and enhance natures positive aspects, in flowing greenery and the focus on bright, natural lighting. At the same time, blocky features create nests within the home to accommodate modern comforts.
