* Residential Architecture: Brun House by Apollo Architects and Associates

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 6 June 2012

Residential Architecture: Brun House by Apollo Architects and Associates: “..a continuous slanting wall lines the length of this small corner lot, emphasizing the depth of the interior space while minimizing the narrowness. the result of subdividing, the 65 square meter site is bound by a road, requiring a window arrangement to introduce daylight while maintaining privacy from the heavily-trafficed neighborhood. the south-facing elevation may be enclosed with wooden louvers contrasting the cladding of deep brown galvalume steel sheets..lifted on pilotis, the entry at street level offers a parking space beneath the structure. private bedrooms and a storeroom for the owner’s bicycle collection are found within the ground floor, admitting daylight through elevated bands of windows to restrict views from passersby..”  Interesting interior volumes, significant glazing and skylights, privacy..
