I first slapped eyes on this house way back on the 28th April 2011 through Arch Daily…. way before I had ever considered blogging. At that point in time I just filed all the images on my hard drive in hope that some day I might be able to work on a house like this – or even better – own one!!
I love how this house interacts with the surrounding forrest – allowing little snippets or ‘vignettes’ into the house, to emphasise and highlight the forest’s beauty.
The InBetween House has been designed with a certain empathy for the topography of the land. This is reflected in different pitches through sections of the roof. It makes for some very interesting ceiling geometry!
One of my favourite images for this house.
Normally you would think that the downward slope of a roof pitch would make the room feel more enclosed. But for some reason, here, when combined with the large expanse of glass windows, one is drawn to the way the room opens up – especially to the view.
The InBetween House has just been named as one of the 2012 Architectural League Winners. In case you can’t tell, I am in total agreement with this! I hope you enjoy this house as much as I do.
