Description by Matt Gibson Structure
Composed of two longitudinal zones situated to north & south of an east west backbone – dwelling areas to the north and sleeping/utility areas to the south, Concrete Home utilises vertical connections and void areas to offer robust visible connections between ranges.
Formally easy, lofty and ethereal, the primary areas are harking back to mid century modernist materials and compositional qualities (notably Brazilian modernism).
Vertical and horizontal materials connections are woven by means of the interiors and are composed utilising a purity of quantity and geometric type.
The shopper, a builder and specialist in masonry was eager to utilise a concrete and stone palette externally.
These supplies together with a beneficiant utilisation of naturally completed timber turned the figuring out parts of each the homes’ structure and inside.
These present a collection of haptic textures that impact a strong distinction towards the graceful and extra polished nature of glass and metal.
