* Residential Architecture: Alma Lane House by Boyd Cody Architects

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 28 January 2012

Residential Architecture: Alma Lane House by Boyd Cody Architects: “..a desire to formally abstract the house, to make it a simple object, a sculptural form, a cube placed in a walled enclosure..This cubical form is sleeved in brick. The openings, cut out in glass and lined in satin anodised aluminium, are detailed in the same manner but different in proportion. The house becomes a composition in solid and void. The position and size of windows are determined by function, light or view. At ground floor the rows of brick that are metaphorically cut from the fabric of the building to make these large openings, form terraces in the garden..”  A small jewel-box, with abundant natural light, clean plaster and iroko wood interior..
