* Residential Architecture: The Shadow House by Liddicoat & Goldhill

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 4 September 2012

Residential Architecture: The Shadow House by Liddicoat & Goldhill: “..British architects Liddicoat & Goldhill constructed their own north London home using black engineering bricks and slabs of white marble..Named the Shadow House, the two-storey building is located on the compact site of a former parking garage..Walls inside the house are of the same dark brickwork as the exterior and contrast with a stark white concrete floor..Larch beams supporting the ceilings of both floors remain exposed inside every room and bare light bulbs hang from them..Household appliances including the television and washing machine are concealed inside specially designed cupboards in the ground floor living rooms..A bedroom and library occupy the first floor, as does a bathroom with a glazed ceiling..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, skylights, interesting fenestration; materials and graphic sensibility..
