Modern Home Design Review
David Jameson Architect have completed designed a modern living space called the BlackWhite Residence which is based in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. He had completed this living space in 2007. This project engages the phenomenon of ruins and explores the idea of aperture, inhabiting the masonry shell of an existing living space.
The architect design program called for renovating the main level and adding a second level with a significantly smaller footprint. The four modern glass temples emerge from a white stucco plinth as volumes of the light and it is define the space between each other, alluding to the Acropolis. By a circulation core sheathed in black that extends to cradle each space, these volumes of light are stitched together. The volumes are instruments of light, gathering natural light to the interior during the day and glowing in the landscape at night.
Modern Home Design Architecture
The glass volumes of the upper level and windows incised into the main level stucco plinth are thought of as lenses to the landscape. Facing the street side of the site, long thin ‘census’ windows give focus to the measured cadence of tree trunks while editing views to passing vehicles.
Above, the glass volumes provide panoramic views to the tree canopy and sky above. To the rear yard, one glass volume slices through the plinth to frame unencumbered two story views. It is a rather comfortable home design!
