Graticule House by David Jameson Architect

By • Sep 17, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Virginia-based studio David Jameson Architect has sent us photos of the Graticule House.

Completed in 2009, this two-story single-family residence is located on a nine acre site, which borders the estuary of a river in Great Falls, Virginia, USA.

Graticule House by David Jameson Architect:

“Situated on a hillside site, the Graticule House is conceived to be a trace, or reference datum, allowing a reading of the relationship between the building and nature.

Fundamental to the conception of the house is the notion of cadence, where repetitious vertical and horizontal markers of the building’s tectonics are juxtaposed with the particularity of the forest and ground plane.

Light and space are modulated by meshing ribbons of glass and wall planes that form a tessellation of solid and void.”
