Madison House
Architect: Thomas Phifer and Partners
Status: On going (2011 - ?)
Visualizer: Studio
Scale: 270 ㎡ Small
Types: House, Residential

This curvy brick house for Madison, Wisconsin, is designed by architects Thomas Phifer and Partners to resemble a serpentine garden wall.

The building will be the home for a pair of university professors within a neighbourhood that also features houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan.

Built from an assortment of reclaimed bricks, Madison House will comprise a free-flowing plan loosely divided up into four wings with cedar floors and white walls. There won’t be many partitions, but rooms will be naturally divided by the swelling and constricting shapes.

Frameless windows will be set forward from the brickwork and finished in mirrored glass, preventing views into rooms from the surrounding garden, while circular skylights will be dotted intermittently across the roof.
