Castro House (Exercise 101 – Jihyun Lee)

 Castro house emphasizes both coziness and balance with the nature which are considered as important parts of construction. Architects built the house to be isolated from the neighbors to keep the privacy of a family who was going to live in this house. This house is an interesting example of the balance between nature and construction. For example, the architects made sure to take advantages of natural day lighting and allowed artificial lighting to be more aesthetic with natural day lighting.

  1. This house design is very interesting, I agree with you when you say that it has balance between nature and construction. I think the way this is achieved is by selection of materials they used and the use of a lot of natural lighting.
