Finding a new way to insulate the unique roof of the house that keeps out tropical heat and training local workers to adapt to new construction techniques were the two biggest challenges that architects faced during the execution of the project. The result though is a cost-effective practical and inventive dwelling that makes life for its residents a whole lot easier!
It is barely surprising news to know that we are increasingly moving away from nature and are stuck in a world dominated by concrete glass cement and stone. The urban landscape has barely any space for nature at its vibrant best.
Translating a couple’s love for books and music into a stylish innovative and light-filled home in Brooklyn BFDO Architects completely revamped the interior of this gorgeous rowhouse.
Connectivity with nature was the driving force behind the form of this Japanese residence and the unique L-shaped cutout in its living space that leads one on to the wooden deck outside. Large glass doors and cleverly placed corner windows bring the distant mountains indoors even as the many sights and sounds outside leave you spellbound.
It is a large wooden volume that holds the expansive and double-height public areas of the house and a white stucco structure behind it that contains the private spaces. Wood plays a major role in shaping the contemporary aesthetics of the house on the outside and inside.
