This house asked by a young client that want a house with minimal footprint, leave some of the lot unoccupied by building and hardscape. Designed by Robert Gurney Architect, this house has minimal cube shape with an urban design. The exterior walls are uncovered, showing charcoal gray blocks of bricks. On this walls you can see various size of rectangular and square openings that used to optimise views to the green spaces. Inside this house you can feel an open sensation with enough natural light that enters from the rectangular and square openings. They use walnut flooring that looks great with the white walls. This house try to be different with the other house in the neighbourhood, showing a stronger relationship to the modern and urban area instead of building a large house with pretentious ties to the rural past.
