* Residential Architecture: Sun Slice House by Steven Holl Architects

Residential Architecture: Sun Slice House by Steven Holl Architects: “..This weekend house..is organized to frame slices of sunlight. While the owner’s profession revolves around artificial light, slices of natural light and their change in space throughout the day and year is the focus of the house. While most elevations are simple rectangles strategically sliced and cut for the play of light within, the north façade is made of glass with views of Lake Garda..The steel frame and concrete structure is skinned with an alloy of copper, steel, chromium, and nickel, which weathers to a leathery red color. Interiors are white plaster with terrazzo floors on the ground level while bamboo floors cover the second. Natural ventilation and geothermal heating and cooling are part of the energy plan..”  With the weathered look of Corten Steel, extensive glazing, natural light, creative form, sharp interiors..
