Residential Architecture: Lujan House by Robert Gurney Architect: “..organized around a centrally located garden. With sixteen foot high ceilings, the eastern volume contains the public living spaces. Continuous clerestory windows assist in providing an abundance of natural light into the space, allowing views to the treetops and sky while minimizing the close proximity of the adjacent houses. A twenty foot wide glass wall slides into a pocket, enhancing the relationship to the outdoors, and provides a sense of living in a garden. The two story western volume is comprised of bedrooms and a small second floor living space. A one story glass link connects the volumes and visually opens to the central garden..” Central garden, abundant glazing, clerestory windows, contextual, material, visual texture sensibilities, interesting interior volumes, views, nature, privacy..
