Quick home concepts

Two quick home ideas from 2011, experimenting with prominent timber frames and rooftop access. The first design was one of the first where I played around with each room contained within its own section, yet still quite formal, and large glass segments connecting them.

The frame is a strong element of the design, both on the exterior and interior:

The more abstract second home, with a rooftop garden. In a hot climate, the lack of vertical windows prevents direct sunlight from heating the interior, while the horizontal frame openings still allow visibility outwards.
