Lines of light – HYLA Architects: no boundaries between interior and exterior

This terrace house with attic located in New York is an example of a beautiful residential project designed by HYLA Architecs.faber terrace-hyla architects-arkitalker-new york-usaAn entire side of the house fronts the street so in order to preserve the privacy but still allowing light and ventilation, a slatted timber screen covers the entire side elevation.

The space continues into the double volume living room with a feature book shelf that extends two stories. faber terrace-hyla architects-arkitalker-new york-usaThe 1st storey has an open plan and large glass sliding doors open up to the lush side garden.
