shou sugi ban

rotterdam-based BYTR architects have completed 'shou sugi ban', an extension to a dwelling in maarn, the netherlands.
the angled roof-profile of the single-storey structure creates a sculptured form which contrasts the minimal 1950's brick home 
that is attached. the highest point culminates with a skylight oriented to flood the kitchen with natural daylight. windows along
the perimeter are located to respond to the interior functions, placed at heights which respond to views from a seated
position at the dining room table or side views to the yard from the sink and countertops.
