atelier rzlbd is responsible for shaft house and 63 degree house – this is their latest stunning achievement.
Architect aterlier rzlbd describes the concept of this house like “a coconut” – harsh and strong on the outside, but warm and milky white on the inside.
Indeed, Charcoal house presents a very bold modern facade of manganese brick, carried right up to a parapet wall concealing the rooftop terrace. Windows have been ‘punched’ through the south-facing front facade, mimicking almost the defensive positions of a rampart.
Yet once inside, the home is a play of light and open spaces. Multiple skylights and extensive use of double-height space creates a welcoming and visually stunning home. The flexible floorplan provides up to 4 bedrooms, plus the possibility of a separate, lower level inlaw suite.
The property is completed with a deep, private backyard, parking for two cars, 4 bathrooms and a family room wired for surround sound.
