OS House by Johnsen Schmaling Architects
by Ted Savage / August 15, 2011
Via @archdaily, a house that stands out from its neighbors in Racine, Wisconsin, seeks to "redefine the urban fabric of this historic rustbelt city."


Design is "a simple rectangular volume that serves as a transition piece between the large mass of the [three-storey] mansion and the low profile of the ranch" that flank it. Extensive use of glass transitions between the street and the shores of Lake Michigan. Visually outstanding is the rainscreen, "a system of thin concrete panels suspended between steel channels," which creates an 8" envelope that contributes to high energy performance.
