Andrew Diesel. Design. March 15th , 2017.
The 1532 House is a modern terraced house in San Francisco, California. Fougeron Architecture is a firm that creates this building. From above, this house stands between other terraced houses in a residential area with Oblique Street in front of them. This three level floor dwelling looks simple from outside with combination of white walls, woods, and glasses. It looks transparent but a layer of wooden lattice on the upper floor covers and keeps the occupants’ privacy.
There is a living room on the second floor. The designer brings modern terraced house design in transparent concept by applying plenty of floors to ceiling glass sliding doors. Smooth moss green carpet covers wooden floor on that area. Wooden desk and leather couch above it look harmoniously natural with an organic courtyard behind the glass walls. The decoration is obviously fresh and earthy. Many designers should recommend utilizing an unused space as a natural courtyard for houses.
The highest floor is a private space for the occupants even the designer still applies glass walls all over its sides. There is a bedroom and a suite bathroom there. The bedroom lies at the corner of the floor and overlook the backyard below. Wooden floor and rattan webbing chairs harmoniously complete this close to nature room. Grey wall separate the sleeping area with a home office. Because of the glass walls, the occupants can enjoy beautiful city panorama from the office.
Wooden steps stairs with semitransparent fiber layers as balusters connect each floor of this house. This transparent concept makes this building bright during daytimes and this house looks wide and spacious even it has limited spaces. Glass skylights on several sides are not only as natural light ways, but also as a bridge to enter the rooms. This house also gives us the great terraced house design ideas to use wooden cladding as bridge flooring and as terrace deck at the same time.
