Sliced House by Hufft Projects
Located in Springfield, Missouri, this modern single family house was designed in 2008 by Hufft Projects.
Description by Hufft Projects
This is take two on ‘The Bent House’, which was canceled after a design board did not approve the modern style in a conservative neighbrohood. So we decided to take it one step further and now it is the ‘bent and sliced house’.
The bend is from the original design (a.k.a.The Bent House), and is a gesture to the curved slope of the site. This curve, coincidentally, is almost the same of the previous design’s site, and thus could be re-utilized.
Like Origami, the house unfolds like piece of slice paper from the sloped site. The negative space between the slices creates clerestories for ventilation and natural light.
