a fragile rock
The aim of this design was to create a fortified sanctuary - hard, and massive on the outside, but functionally comfortable within the interior. While almost harsh looking on the exterior due to the delicate windows being engulfed by a massive concrete block, the inside features a warm, earthy color palette and uses natural materials to create a cozy home for a family of four. The main focal point of the design is the two story staircase incased in floor-to-ceiling glass. This feature greets the visitor as approaching the front, making the mammoth rock seem more delicate upon entering.
