Ballard Aperture House by First Lamp Architecture

By • Dec 5, 2013

Seattle-based architectural firm First Lamp Architecture has created the Ballard Aperture House.

Completed in 2013, this contemporary house in Seattle, Washington, USA, consists of two separate homes which were designed using principles of optics in order to create pleasant urban living environments.

Ballard Aperture House by First Lamp Architecture:

“Modern urban homes are a push against the increasing complexity of urban life. We depend on our homes to balance our life against the outside world. When we arrive home, we need a filter – a place that welcomes us while holding at bay the chaos of the world behind us. From inside, our view becomes sharpened because we have respite from the magnitude of its influence.

In every respect, these two homes embody the contemporary spirit of shelter. Space efficiency and material science have propelled our quest for a lighter footprint, and every detail has been crafted for the sole purpose of perfectly serving those inside. Available for sale in early 2013, we are thrilled to announce the commencement of the Ballard Aperture Townhomes.”
