Modern House With Complex Geometry Overlooking The Water

 
Advertisement

This modern 12,300-square foot house has a very complex composition, reminiscent of the canvases of Georges Braque, in which geometric forms appear and disappear in a constant dance of illusion and materiality. The structure overlooks the water and features a series of intimate courtyards and cantilevered decks. It consists of a series of district yet interlocking rectilinear volumes conjoined by a transparent longitudinal axis. A glass-skinned throughway connects and distinguishes the two dominant volumes, or towers, capturing light and adding to the sense of interior capaciousness. The exterior is made of many materials including glass, limestone, stucco and others. Some of these materials are also used in interior.
