Ansley Glass House, the house with Glass Curtain-Walls was designed by Brian Bell and David Yocum Architects. The use of glass curtain-walls as a cladding material establishes a permeable boundary between the house and its immediate context, provides for light and views, and materially engages the glass skyscrapers visible on the immediate horizon.Located in an historic downtown neighborhood, with a mature tree canopy and direct views to the immediate city skyline. The project replaces a series of additions to a 1910-era house with a new glass-lined living space including a garage, kitchen, family room, library, and a new stair linking three levels. The structure is capped with an occupiable roof deck surrounded by glass guardrails and clerestories, offering diagonal sightlines up to the midtown skyscrapers beyond and into the living spaces below.

Summer House Design
From Architects : ” The building was thought of as a tool to help explore the qualities and sensations of the site and surrounding nature. Through a conscious handling of the daylight on naked surfaces and shading laths, the mode of climate and weather outside always becomes present inside.
The theme plans has been to divide the house into different zones, the use of which depends on the climate and condition of the weather. The main functions are concentrated in a core area. Which is well insulated and can be heated in winter. During warmer periods, the habitable area can be extended to the adjoining veranda and hallway, which are heated only by solar radiation. A glazed canopy on horizontal laths provides yet another sheltered zone along the facade. ” Designed by WRB Architects
