The NaCl House by David Jameson Architect
Project: The NaCl House
Designed by David Jameson Architect
Location: Bethesda, Maryland, USA
David Jameson Architect have designed The NaCl House in Maryland distinctively challenging the perception of horizontally layered housing.
From the Architects:
Breaking the prescriptive mold of horizontally layered homes, NaCl House aspires to render unclear the spatial organization of the project and explore an architecture of ambiguous scale. The resultant massing reveals an imperfect, rough-hewn form recalling the natural isometric formation of mineral rock salt.
The exterior composition is read as a single object that reflects a dynamic fluid interior. Uncorrelated to the buildings structure, glazing panels are detailed flush to the exterior surface, eliminating shadows which further inhibit a reading of the buildings scale.
