Chicago-based Dirk Denison Architects have designed the Marin County Residence, in California, U.S.A.
Mostly white, the light colors create a fresh and emphasized spatial areas to live. Inner courts between volumes unite residence with the environment.
The plan of the residence is based upon an irregular grid, which informs all elements of its composition.
Each programmatic function is contained within an individual building to respond to its specific needs, enabling each room to form a distinct relationship with its own courtyard or garden.
There’s a joyful interplay of light through the fractured and folded ceilings.
The volumes are bounded by a wall, which creates a single form out of a village of buildings and landscapes.
