Ply Me To The Moon

Okay, I admit that the title is horribly corny! When it popped into my head though, I decided that I just had to use it. Take a look at the Wall House by F.A.R. Architects and you'll see why. The exterior shell reminds me of a geodesic dome (and could kind of pass for a moon, right?) and the interior is clad in plywood which the complements steel, concrete, and glass structure. I also love the accents of red and black throughout, but its really the ply built-ins and walls that caught my eye. Also to note, plywood is a relatively super inexpensive building material, keeping the budget for this home in Santiago, Chile in check without sacrificing style.

Sarah - I came across your blog yesterday and absolutely love it. You have some great stuff on here! This post reminded me of my brother-in-law, he does amazing concrete work. Check out his website and/or facebook - Concrete Wave Design

Incredible. That is a genius idea for moderating temperatures AND making a house the coolest EVER. As a redhead living in the desert I am so tempted to pitch sails outisde my patio too. Shame that I live in a Georgian...
