Inspired by the Structure of Mineral Rock Salt: NaCl House

NaCl house was designed by Architect David Jameson and is located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The massive contemporary residence displays a homogeneous white color palette, contrasting the natural surroundings. Here is a description from the architects: “Breaking the prescriptive mold of horizontally layered homes, NaCl House aspires to render unclear the spatial organization of the project and explore an architecture of ambiguous scale.¬† The resultant massing reveals an imperfect, rough form recalling the natural isometric formation of mineral rock salt. The exterior composition is read as a single object that reflects a dynamic fluid interior. Uncorrelated to the buildings structure, glazing panels are detailed flush to the exterior surface, eliminating shadows which further inhibit a reading of the buildings scale“. How would you comment on the overall layout of this residence, inspired by …salt?
