Project: Barcode is our latest modern architecture project to break ground. The design for this 2-story modern home is a re-interpretation of a shotgun style home, essentially designed as two overlapped and slightly offset rectangles forming the two floor levels. The house circulation runs front-to-back relative to the lot and affords maximum views to the outdoor spaces we designed in place of a traditional side yard. The Preston Hollow area lot sits on the corner of two residential streets, so the garage and driveway could be tucked to the rear of the lot with access from the side street. The public spaces affront the main street and sit beside a covered outdoor living room and pool.
The facade design features a unique expression of randomly spaced vertical battens which mimic the bar code on product packaging, turning the ordinary and everyday idea of a bar code into a totally modern architectural expression.
