Stack House

Stack House

The Stack House is essentially a stack of blocks. Solid blocks of private spaces are stacked in an open, laced pattern to form voids for shared living space. The blocks are positioned in response to the urban and natural setting in relation to the site. The result is an open, two-story void of shared space that is simultaneously protected for privacy and immersed in its natural surroundings.

Contrasting materials express this stacking and shifting on the exterior. Inside, the blocks are carefully carved with curves and surfaced in white oak to shape more intimate spaces to join a family together to share a meal, to recline, read and take in the majestic oak outside, or to play the piano and fill the void with music.

What was the brief?
To build a build privacy into a single family home in a busy neighborhood, but still allow for a connection to natural surroundings and create an intimacy between interior and exterior.

Who are the clients and what’s interesting about them?
The clients were interested in filling their home with music and requested a space to host recitals in their home. This created a unique opportunity to explore the potential of music and sound as a design principle, centering the home and informing the architecture.
