Vertical House by Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects
Here's a cool house with many close to real "up" call - Vertical House by Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects is a single family home located on a small lot in Venice, California. The area to the architect was to build instead, therefore, the strong vertical house. But the small size of the lot does not mean that the architect was going to skimp on the square footage, it means he would have to be creative with his use of space. This 2,400-sq .- ft. home makes the most of every inch, and to maximize light and views to strengthen its sense of space. The house frame houses fatty steel glazing (clear and colored) and solid panels, which were cleverly arranged in a staggered remarkable up-down model. This same sense of the modern movement made its way indoors, where a basement and two floors are dotted with rectangular and elongated windows that flood the house with bright natural light.
