House Ijburg

Program: A 1,500-square-foot 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom residence.

Design concept and solution: Inspired by the 1920s brick detailed facades of the Amsterdam School, the architects designed this steel-framed residence, clad in black bricks of varied texture, as a vertical garden. Flowerpots are integrated into the facade, which, when covered in climbing plants, will provide shade and privacy.
