Following the cyclical nature of the client’s daily routine, the interior spaces of House O are laid out in the order of his day-to-day activities. The south-facing master bedroom occupies the highest point in the house with a view out towards the yard. A spacious living room and access to an interior courtyard located at the center of home can be found on the second floor. Glazed strips on the floor as well as the lifted and glazed south-facing opening let in natural light to the basement level, where the kitchen, bathroom, and studio are situated.
Clad almost entirely in glass and bright, honey-colored wood, House O will be built in the garden space of an existing property and surrounded by privacy hedges. A glazed exterior wall wraps around the facade and is punctuated by movable wooden louvers to protect the interior from direct sunlight. The structure is currently under construction and is slated for completion early next year.
