Record Houses

Record Houses 2015

Every year, Record looks for houses that advance the architectural discipline—they push the limits of spatial concepts and materiality or refine the existing vocabulary in imaginative ways. Just see this year's choices: one house is clad in solid-surface material; another reflects its surroundings with polished stainless steel; a third literally mirrors its environs, using glass. While the latter two dissolve architecture within natural settings, other houses here open out to nature in traditional but inspiring ways. One selection, however, doesn't do any of the above: instead it distorts our perception of scale, height, and function in a surprisingly inventive urban dwelling. Like the others, it creatively explores the potential of single-family house design.
