This residence designed by W. G. Clark is situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its austere construction is an example of a masterful use of Modernist form, proportions and materials. This project's challenge was to intervene upon Clark's house to manipulate natural light and views.
Curtains in the conventional sense have no place in this home. When a designer is faced with adding to architecture with a capital "A", how can changes be made to respect the existing while addressing its limitations? I approached a window treatment solution by re-thinking another architectural invention--the curtain wall.
