House 36 is a monolithic building that resembles a crystal mountain. The angular shell interprets the hillside, roof and walls which are cast of the same material. Built entirely out of insulating concrete, the massive walls convey atmosphere, and the large openings bring light. The rough-sawn formwork provides a rich and an aesthetic surface similar to a natural stonewall. A quiet material approach selection brings a harmonious balance. The Project has been nominated for Mies van der Rohe Award 2015
Winner of WAN Concrete in Architecture Award 2014
Winner of Iconic Award Architecture Best of Best 2014
