House Y / Presentation Poster

House Y
House Y

I wanted to make use of translucent glass as a piece of "art". When a silhouette is cast, we cannot make out what is really on the other side of the glass. Just like abstract art, we do not understand what it is really trying to say, it is up to our own interpretation. The translucent glass also provides privacy for certain parts of the house.
I had a large cuboid form puncture into the unit as my design, the cuboid is perpendicular to the sunpath thus only certain time of the day there will be direct daylighting.
