Residential Architecture: Hampden Lane House by Robert Gurney Architect: “..sited to maximize green area on the property. Designed as a cube, the new house is approximately 2,200 square feet with no unused or underutilized spaces. The flat roof provides an additional 1,100 square feet of outdoor living space with views of treetops..Fenestration in the ground faced block walls, composed of varying sized rectangular and square openings, is arranged to optimize views to the green spaces while minimizing views of adjacent houses in close proximity. A series of landscape walls orchestrate the relationship between the street, required parking court and house. Interior spaces are open and light filled with crisp detailing. Walnut flooring provides a rich base for white walls and millwork, designed in juxtaposition to the charcoal gray exterior walls..” An AIA 2012 award-winning house, wonderful sense of materiality, visual texture, context and fenestration, abundant glazing, natural light, very nice interiors..
