This is the largest of the private homes we designed. Composed of reflective blue glass and blue steel construction, the building blends within its particular environment through reflection rather than materiality or landscaping. Set within a luscious garden, the Blue House reflects its surroundings within a world of opaque and tinted reflections. A solitary white concrete guesthouse serves as a solid counterpoint challenging notions of mass and transparency. At night the Blue House is transformed into a reflection of internal life as its inhabitants occupy and circulate among the various spaces. The illuminated gardens serve as a dramatic extension of the internal spaces, underlining the notion that what ultimately defines the interiors of this home is the climatic control, the hour of the day and the human activities that transcend the glazed facade. Completed 2006.
