This project explores the extent in which architecture can control and manipulate natural lighting. This house is designed for a collector of vintage spectacles and
the design reflects the nuances and characteristics of this collection. The house itself is designed to act as an optical instrument: reflecting light, omitting
light, and receiving light. Various shading devices are used to create unique moments of light which frame the collection that the collector has on display.
This house is situated in the Riverbluffs Park in Galt, Cambridge. It naturally integrates itself into the hill, taking
on the incline in elevation as a key element of the design.
All drawings are hand-drafted.
