Project: Glenbrook Residence
Designed by David Jameson Architect
Location: Bethesda, Maryland, USA
With a large glass pavilion made a part of Glenbrook Residence, David Jameson Architects find a splendid way to invite the green outside into this family home. During construction of this building only natural materials were use, for more images and architects description continue after the jump:
From the Architects:
Two stone structures surround a glass pavilion within a wooded landscape in Bethesda, Maryland. The concept for the Glenbrook residence was to create three distinct structures: one for the most public programs (entry space, garage and guest bedrooms), one for the most private living programs and one where “public” and private can co-exist. Each space has an outdoor terrace or some special connection to the site while the roof of the glass pavilion folds beyond one’s cone of vision to create the feeling of being outside. The building is made of all natural materials with a 100-year lifespan and features an underground spring-fed water furnace HVAC system.
