Brahler Residence is a renovation task undertaken by Robert Maschke Architects.
The house is positioned in Bay Village, Ohio, and was finished in 2011.
Brahler Residence by Robert Maschke Architects:
“The website of the present Brahler Residence possesses a dramatic downward slope from the street towards a brook that bisects the whole lot. A densely wooded perimeter gives privacy from the compact suburban neighborhood. The client wished to keep the quaint cottage design of the existing century outdated shake clad structure while improving it with open interior spaces filled with organic light. A new master suite, gallery, and indoor/outdoor entertaining spaces supplement the current system.
The architecture merges landscape and constructing surfaces, articulating the envelope of the addition while configuring the web site into differentiated formal and informal spaces. The addition is located to produce courtyard spaces at a number of ranges. A folding roof plane mediates in between gabled and diagonally hipped roof geometries to create a dynamic vaulted interior area. Roofs and facades clad in wood shake, standing seam metal, and vegetated surfaces fold collectively, collapsing the distinctions between new and present, landscape and building, façade and roof. From the street, a windowless residing façade camouflages the addition’s massing, escalating privacy for the spaces past. Inside, one particular encounters an atmosphere characterized by layered views that create subtle connections to the exterior.”
