About West End
Introducing the West End House: A Hidden Gem in Richmond
Nestled in a surprising woodland clearing, the West End House emerges as a unique architectural marvel in an established neighborhood of Richmond’s west end. Skillfully designed, the plan’s elements dynamically shift against one another, generating both privacy and open spaces while framing captivating views of the surrounding clearing and woods.
Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Connection
Generous expanses of south-facing glass effortlessly link the ground floor with the natural landscape, providing a seamless indoor-outdoor experience. To shield the interiors from direct sunlight, large overhangs thoughtfully protect these glass surfaces. Additionally, an integrated screened room enables the home’s interior to open up and embrace the outdoors, further enhancing the connection with nature.
