What We Liked This Week–7/6
July 8, 2012
Domestic brutalism seems like an anomaly, if only because of the typology’s relatively low success rate. Still, when executed right, the synthesis of the two can yield a lovely project. See the Maruma House to see how to use unadorned concrete surfaces in a single-family house. The design benefits greatly from its siting, encompassed, as it is, by foliage and vegetation, whose vibrant colors and forms offer a brilliant counterpoint to the lushly texture concrete walls.
