Alva Roy Architects recently completed Garden Void House, a single family two story house, including five bedrooms, basement home office, living/dining and kitchen/family room and an enclosed garage space of approximately 4000 sf in total.
From the outside in, the house is crafted with natural yet refined honest building materials, and the strong contrast of large and very narrow windows causes anyone who drives by to slow down and enjoy the view.
The oasis is centered on Garden, which begins unconventionally on the basement level and torpedoes up through the void space of the house. The contrasting windows play a crucial role in supporting the growth of the home, lighting it up brilliantly during the day and allowing just the right amount of light into the house.
