Last week we had a look at the fantastic terraced interior of the XHouse1. What you don't realize is that richly complex interior is wrapped in a simple exterior geometry. The result is a complete surprise as the you walk in and the interior reveals itself to you. The outside presents this simple wedge shaped prism clad in simple materials. Simple punched window openings for the private spaces contrast with wide glass areas and metal clad surfaces that corresponding with the large open spaces of the plan. So even though the exterior swings simple, it tells a story about what you will find inside. And yes, a great example of this house is built - do you want to see it?
