This home by Wright Architects is a re-presentation of Phillip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan Connecticut. The difference is the glass was dismissed to adapt to a more tropical climate. The steel pavilion like structure provides the perfect geometry for wide open spaces. The gray brick creates a really nice geometric pattern that echoes the straight lines found in other elements of the home.

“The main living areas and circulation zones are literally open, outdoor conditions under cover. Functional ‘pods’ figure in plan to enclose bedrooms, bathrooms, a lounge / music room and an e-glazed office – all secure by way of sliding glass panels and individually air-conditioned. This way limiting the carbon footprint to be controlled by the residents on an ‘as needed’ operation basis. A central dappled-light filled ‘internal’ courtyard features the swimming pool as a feature garden within the main living and dining spaces. Open to the sky, this central garden provides a regular spectacle in tropical downpours as a “rain curtain”. The office ‘pod’ features glazed walls that double as transparent bookshelves, conceptually as display case featuring a ‘field’ of bookends.”
