Bent/Sliced House modern
 

Bent/Sliced House

This is take two on ‘The Bent House’, which was canceled
after a design board did not approve the modern style in a
conservative neighbrohood. So we decided to take it one
step further and now it is the ‘bent and sliced house’.
The bend is from the original design (a.k.a.The Bent House),
and is a gesture to the curved slope of the site. This curve,
coincidentally, is almost the same of the previous design’s
site, and thus could be re-utilized.
Similiar to Japanese Oragami, this house unfolds like a piece
of slice paper from the sloped site. The negative space
between the slices creates wonderful clerestories for natural
light and ventilation. Photo Credit: Mike Sinclair
