The Tree House by Matt Fajkus Architecture is a light-filled family home in Texas

Comments Off on The Tree House by Matt Fajkus Architecture is a light-filled family home in Texas

Matt Fajkus Architecture has created a bright, daylit home in Austin, Texas, and is centered around a huge oak tree on the property. Clad in stucco, the upper level is a floating white box that acts as a “treehouse” for the children’s rooms, while the main floor master suite opens out into an enclosed courtyard, which can be used for social gatherings as well as personal use. An enormous, 2-storey window wall allows natural daylight to pour into the home; its light-colored interiors help to diffuse the light throughout, giving the sense that it’s much larger than it appears. The oak tree that is so integral to the home is easily seen from many angles, and the dappled light created by its leaves create interesting effects, both inside and out. + Tree House by Matt Fajkus Architecture Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Sustainable photoluminescent architecture has the potential to light up the night

Comments Off on Sustainable photoluminescent architecture has the potential to light up the night

Architect Eleonora Nicoletti has a rather bright idea: she’s proposing the use of photoluminescent architecture that glows in the dark without electric power. These structures could be used for everything from theatrical sets to living spaces, and work by absorbing invisible ultraviolet radiation from ambient light and then re-emitting that energy as visible light once the sun sets, illuminating the nighttime world in a sustainable way. Available in a wide variety of colors and shapes, they provide visually stunning experience, and also help people save energy and money while reducing carbon dioxide emissions. + Eleanora Nicoletti Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
