What Houzz contributors are saying:

...the concrete wall is a screen of sorts, giving privacy and insulation to the wood and copper box behind it. It also acts as a strong transition between the public and the private, a threshold between the two. Behind this concrete wall the house is quite open, with large areas of glass affording water views; the occasional inside face of the concrete wall reminds people of the exterior face.

Large concrete wall prompts mystery with scale and contrasting textures. It also helps with privacy and a separation of private and public spaces. Heather Kovacik
