The Fence House

Armored by a front facade of various fencing and a dearth of street-facing windows, the Fence House gives owners both a sense of security and privacy. The house was built as two forms, giving the adults a peaceful retreat and their kids a place to be kids. In contrast to the front, the rear of the house is almost entirely made of glazing for access to natural light and views of the garden.

Inside, the raw elements of concrete, brick, and timber shape the interior’s rugged contemporary aesthetic. A lofted library made from vintage oak beams sits on top of large steel beams above the opening living room, which is outdone only by the owner’s vintage race car displayed in the hallway.
