The Big Idea :
Replace a hallway with glass enclosed bridges that connect you to nature while providing seamless access to separate & intimate spaces.
Client Aspiration :
The primary concern of the client was to have privacy in their master suite while still being able to access the rest of the home. In a typical home the hallway or corridor takes you from one room to another, but usually those corridors are restricted in space and feel tight. While the traditional method of a hallway was always used to connect you from space to space, why can’t the transitions to those spaces be enhanced by connecting you to beautiful views.
Our Guidance :
By playing with the idea of what a hallway is, the big idea behind this home was to connect three distinct functions by a glass bridge. The distinct functions are a master bed suite, Living / Kitchen space and the guest quarter. By connecting these spaces by a glass bridge, the transition of experiences become more alive. The idea of a hallway becomes blurred and views to the natural surroundings become a journey of the experience.
