Andrew Maynard Architects' Tattoo House is a beautiful example of transforming the challenge of the practical limitations of code and a client's needs into a cohesive innovative design. The tree silhouettes address the city requirements of 75% opacity for second-story spaces.
This addition to an existing three bedroom home includes a new kitchen and living space. The UV protective screen provides an ever-changing display of shadows inside, as well as eliminating any need for curtains. It adds an organic aspect to such a modern form. I love this juxtaposition.
