* Residential Architecture: Lion’s Head by Bates Masi Architects

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 3 May 2012

Residential Architecture: Lion’s Head by Bates Masi Architects: “..The house is composed of two simple taut volumes clad in durable slate tiles and a weathering wood with naturally water-resistant tannins and oils.  The public and private living areas are in the waterside volume, all with spectacular views and access to the beach.  Circulation, baths, and utilities are in the landward volume overlooking the pool.  By offsetting the volumes vertically and horizontally, the surface area of the compact design increases, allowing for more windows to admit light and westerly breezes.  This slippage also creates intimate outdoor spaces for bathing, entertaining, and dining..”  Extensive glazing, views, balconies, terraces, wood and slate, indoor/outdoor sensibility, peaceful and private..
