A simple and thoughtful extension to a renovated clinker brick dual occupancy. Structurally rational and energy efficient but also sculpturally dramatic.
Its curved cantilevered wall faces and frames its long backyard. The shape of the façade is generated from an analysis of overlooking and as an organic response to the sites feature trees. By angling the windows inward into a V shape and blending the apex with a curve, overlooking into the neighbors yards is prevented. Floor to ceiling glass windows look down onto the backyard and into the tree tops without screening.
Standing in front of this window one gets the sense of floating. Throughout the day this sculptural glass façade reflects its surrounding trees in lovely patterns and unexpected ways. At night from within the curved glass reflects its interior back into itself creating an abstract art wall.
