“House of Horns acts as an instrument to register the cycles of the day through six ‘horns’ or differently oriented skylights and clerestories,” the studio described.
Four of the protrusions would rise about the main living space, enabling the home’s occupants “to discover the variable lighting conditions that the horns provide”. The two remaining protrusions would be situated above hallways flanking the main space, mirroring each other across the long axis.
Inside, the home would feature concrete flooring, floating marble partitions, and curved ceilings sheathed in blonde wood. Situated in the centre of the dwelling, the public zone would be open in plan and intended to be highly flexible – an area that provides for “a more nomadic appropriation of space” than is found in a typical residence.
