Black + White House
Renovation of an existing house included small adjustments to the rooflines to make a much more modern expression inspired by Scandinavian architecture. Minimal trim around windows and corners also helps the pure geometric forms emerge. While still respecting the scale and the origins of the local style, it is unmistakably distinct.
Its complementary black box master suite with roof deck creates a contrast with the more traditional, iconic house shapes in white. The result is a house that is familiar and comfortable while at the same time challenging our ideas about what a house should be.
