    Default Ansley Park Glass House

    The Ansley Park Glass House by BLDGS Architects

    In the Who-needs-Privacy section, Brian Bell and David Yocum of the Atlanta, Georgia based BLDGS Architects have designed the Ansley Park Glass House, an addition to a 1910-era home in a historic downtown neighborhood












    The Ansley Park Glass House by BLDGS Architects
    The Ansley Glass House is located in an historic downtown neighborhood, with a mature tree canopy and direct views to the immediate city skyline. The project replaces a series of additions to a 1910-era house with a new glass-lined living space including a garage, kitchen, family room, library, and a new stair linking three levels. The structure is capped with an occupiable roof deck surrounded by glass guardrails and clerestories, offering diagonal sightlines up to the midtown skyscrapers beyond and into the living spaces below.
    The clients expressed a strong desire to have their domestic spaces perceptually lodged in the out-of-doors, and to have the visceral presence of the city skyline both night and day. The interior spaces are arranged as a series of split-levels, each spiraling around a new central stair. The stair, with no visible stringers, is suspended from adjacent and overhead structure, and uppermost rooms are cantilevered and suspended over lower ones. This spatial arrangement is in stark contrast to the historic front half of the residence, creating a dialogue of space types. The use of glass curtain-walls as a cladding material establishes a permeable boundary between the house and its immediate context, provides for light and views, and materially engages the glass skyscrapers visible on the immediate horizon. This combination—offset and cantilevered interior spaces viewable through a transparent exterior cladding—proposes a residential experience which is both spatially and visually suspended within the very close context.

    I'd be interested to see the original 1910 facade and how the bolt-in glass box fits with it. There are a lot of houses like this in Melbourne; some work, some don't.

    it's pretty sexy from the back (the pic with the pool) and i quite like the inside. not sure about the outside though, especially in the last pic.

    Isn't this house identical to the place used in the movie 'The Glass House?'
    Or was this the place used in the movie?

    It's beautifully done, but has a gloomy grey feel to it. I'm torn.

    I think I'd be running into the glass windows all the time.
