Text description provided by the architects. Evoking the image of an illuminated Japanese lantern, a glass and steel volume is incised into the body of an existing row house. Conceptually a contrast of the light and heavy, acid etched panels are inserted into a self supporting steel frame that cantilevers out of the masonry mass.

The entire steel frame not only serves as the structure for the glass skin, but also functions as an intelligent shelving solution for the interior. Tectonically, the frame lends itself to being a tangible presence felt inside the house, enveloping the kitchen and the second floor study spaces. Vertical partitions deliberately placed throughout the etched window wall allow for the occasional transparent glass to selectively frame views of the sky and trees towards the rear and side of the site.
