Life House by John Pawson
Life House is a minimalist design located in Llanbister, England, designed by John Pawson. The houses programme is arranged as a series of self-contained folds, opening off two corridors. Meeting at a right angle, these passageways generate extended internal vistas and a plan designed to allow groups living in proximity to spend time together and apart, in a spatial arrangement that shares certain characteristics with the monastic cloister. The corridors one light, one dark represent more than just the means to get between the different parts of the house, they are key architectural experiences, each charged with its own distinctive character.
