Virginia-based studio David Jameson Architect has designed the NaCi Residence.

Completed in November 2011, this 4,860 square foot, two story, contemporary home is located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.

NaCl Residence by by David Jameson Architect:

“Breaking the prescriptive mold of horizontally layered homes, NaCl House aspires to render unclear the spatial organization of the project and explore an architecture of ambiguous scale. The resultant massing reveals an imperfect, rough-hewn form recalling the natural isometric formation of mineral rock salt.

The exterior composition is read as a single object that reflects a dynamic fluid interior. Uncorrelated to the buildings structure, glazing panels are detailed flush to the exterior surface, eliminating shadows which further inhibit a reading of the buildings scale.”
