Interior of the Ant House by mA-style architects

The spatial complexity that exists in the Ant House by mA-style architects arrises from a fairly simple operation: floating a home-shaped volume in the middle of a cubic one. The program of the Ant House is organized around this house-within-a-house: the kitchen, the living room and the bedrooms all revolve around the light wooden, gabled form. The openings aren’t exactly randomly placed because they allow for views between spaces and highlight the relationship of the volume with the section of the house– but they also help animate and lighten up a space that would otherwise be dominated by the limited material palette.
