House / January 23, 2019 / Adreanna Marie
The architects transformed a former stable building and warehouse into an expansive and elegant single family residence.
Sitting on “cloud 9” refers to the 1896 International Cloud-Atlas in which, of the ten cloud types, cloud No. 9, cumulonimbus, was the biggest, puffiest and most comfortable-looking. Clouds exhibit both wave-like patterns and fractal geometries – one of which is referred to as an Apollonian gasket.
This geometry forms an underlying system of organization for the house in both plan and section. The main stables area is a large open plan volume where functions are delineated by 360 degree free standing joinery.
