This is a cool looking house, right?…But why?
This house, being a pure form and having bold geometry, demonstrates how “absence“ can compliment a building design and strengthen a visual theme. This residence is a strong pure form in the landscape; the bold shape is complimented by the absence of both transitional landscaping and auxiliary building elements. It’s not there…
The buildings sits brutally bare in a natural landscape; celebrating both the house as a man-made form, and also, by contrast, accentuating it’s natural surroundings… a win win in the world of contextual architectural design.
P.S: Just note how the the punch-hole windows subtly responds the natural ground line – masterful!
