East Elevation

Hello readers,
It has been a couple of weeks since my last blog post so I figured it was time to update the site again. I have been making an intensive study of the works of Le Corbusier and this new design entitled the Arrow House was in part inspired by his work. You may see some of the details from the famous Villa Savoye in this house; for example the trademark use of the support piers and the rounded ground floor. The parti (or distilled idea) for the design was a separated arrow that was infilled by a curtain wall. Other viewers may see a rabbit when they look at the elevation. This was a challenging project in terms of scale. The large atrium space and the prow living room are both lofty spaces and while dramatic, such spaces can be hard to live in and furnish. Creating intimacy within two large adjoining spaces required using lots of design tricks and a few iterations before I was happy with the end result.

The final version of the design contains 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with a home gym, a home office with separate entrance, a home theater, and a unique meditation space on the top floor.

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do
think that you should write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t talk about such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
