In place of an old row house Maison BVA by dmvA blends the brick aesthetic of it’s surroundings with a playful design that maximizes light and the outdoors while also maintaining privacy. The windows on the facade are partially obscured by the brickwork giving the feeling of a sort of castle like structure. This could not be any further from the truth. The back half of the house is entirely transparent and looks out onto a nice green yard. The touches of color within the house peak out through the spaces in the brick as though they are taunting the drab neighboring houses.
