Following the debut of his minimalistic “Panorama House,” that showcased 2 giant horizontal cuts, Jim Caumeron Design have made their return with their latest geometrical architectural project titled: “VIEWPOINT HOUSE”. The house showcases bigger trapezoid shapes that center themselves around certain viewpoints (thus its title). The interior protects its core via a white concrete “hood”.
The house is located in a heavily populated subdivision of the Philippines’ Quezon City constructed in a 400-sq-meter L-shaped lot. The back of the home features nothing of significance having been blocked by the fence/wall in the neighbor’s yard. That being the case Jim Caumeron Design set out to make the best of the front part of the house providing clear views of the trees in the park across the street.
The house also features a “Mother” window standing above the others and raised high up enough that the people passing by the house can’t see inside the house and the home owners can just enjoy the view…until they need their windows cleaned. The majority of the house is bare and minimalistic utilizing concrete and glass with natural wooden frames. Slants and overhangs are also serving a function of allowing fresh air to enter when the air conditioning is turned off during a downpour as rainwater is collected to the sides.
The opposite of the library shows a cluster of small port windows. There is also a multitude of holes that bring in natural light to fill the room when reading with the window layout also serving as a background when moving through the hallway. The small windows can also be opened via a magnetic locking device.
