Concrete + Wood

cv26

This house presents a juxtaposition of concrete and wood in a domestic setting.  This single family home in Houston, Texas, is in essence a piece of sculpture where a concrete box and a wooden box come together to make a minimalist home with a human scale.  The expressed formwork and ties break down the mass of the concrete into smaller units.  This home showcases the raw beauty of concrete in the public parts of the house in contrast to the warmth of wood for the private portions.  Robertson Design carries this theme to the garden as well with a wood deck that delicately rests on the grass firmly anchored at one end with a concrete fire pit.
