The basic structure of these townhouses was created using concrete and steel with glass being used extensively on the upper levels to bring in a flood of natural light. Moving away from this minimal and almost ‘steely’ visual appeal of the interior it is a wooden volume on the second level of townhouse that holds private spaces.
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.
Along with the glass roof a series of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a revitalized floor plan completely changed the aura of this Welsh family home. Using smart structural analysis unnecessary old load bearing walls and pillars were done away with to create a more open free-flowing interior.
It was Architects EAT who decided to give the residence a façade unlike any other with a white aluminum screen that keeps away prying eyes and helps shape a more intimate entrance zone. It also preserves a sense of mystery as one is greeted by a blue front gate lovely grasscrete hanging plants and a serene ambiance.
