Project Description

Architectural Design Detail / Merit
Curved House isn’t curved, per se, explains architect Matthew Hufft, AIA, LEED AP. “It’s really this modern box,” he says. But subtle radii appear throughout, most prominently in the brick walls that mark the building’s south and west façades. The gray/black brick waves slip behind ipe-sided walls, cupping the entrances to the main house and cabana on their inside curves and building undulant shadows on their outer surfaces. The jury praised the house as a whole for “how it explores the manipulation of forms,” calling this detail in particular “really lovely.” —Bruce D. Snider
