MRJ House

explores materiality and ways of introducing light deep within a structure

 

MRJ House employs several strategies for fulfilling the client’s demand for more light: a four story lightwell with transparent stairs is introduced, the front and rear yards are excavated and new curtain walls are installed, and a double-height living space is carved down from the first floor into the basement.
