House of the Week 008: Blackwell House


A modern house in Arkansas designed by architect Marlon Blackwell and his wife Meryati (a partner in MBP) for their young family. The bridge-like structure was built over a seasonal creek.

The façade is finished with horizontally lain redwood strips that act as a rain screen and the elevation is punctuated with long, black framed windows.

the thing that irks me the most with this house is that the staircase ruins the geometry and sticks out like a giant error.
