The Stack House designed by Lazor Office is essentially a stack of blocks. Solid blocks of private spaces are stacked in an open, laced pattern to form voids for shared living space. Photography by Peter VonDeLinde
The blocks are positioned in response to the urban and natural setting in relation to the site. The result is an open, two-story void of shared space that is simultaneously protected for privacy and immersed in its natural surroundings. Contrasting materials express this stacking and shifting on the exterior. Inside, the blocks are carefully carved with curves and surfaced in white oak to shape more intimate spaces to join a family together to share a meal, to recline, read and take in the majestic oak outside, or to play the piano and fill the void with music.
