Jason Street Glass House
The modernist glass house straddles two adjoining sections that are bisected by a stream.
The site is enclosed by the stream valley and native vegetation, so the length of the façade was determined by the distance between the steep banks. The expansive use of glass plays to the site, providing natural light and views through the foliage.
The dwelling is a simple plan with open internal circulation. The exposed structure is a design feature, with repeating black elements offset by the warmth of the veneered plywood.
