Silhouettes & Screens

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.  More on this project at Arkinetia.
