KLab architecture | Cubic Distortion HouseThis house grew out of a re-conceptualization of the traditional Greek stone house, whose irregular stonework generates a fractured façade. The arrangement of the building’s formal mass evolved from a simple cube distorted in such a way as to allow the house to glimpse views and capture sunlight that would otherwise have been inaccessible, given its North-facing site. While horizontal planes inserted into the cube have been folded and twisted to create a dynamic unravelling of the façade, light shafts cut into the plan bring light down through the different levels, creating feature light-boxes.
