Seen from the street, Black Stone Buildings is an unusual and irregularly stacked block where traditional materials, such as lime, sand and ash render, have been hand-worked to reveal a slate aggregate, its black flecks giving texture to the abstract facade.
Inside, a complex unfolding of spaces results in three apartments nestled tightly into this corner plot. Spatially, all three homes have interesting and complex compositions of outdoor/indoor spaces that artfully manage privacy and bring daylight deep into the plan. They share common themes: loggias and terraces form external rooms and large sliding windows allow a diverse array of views – from sky and garden to wider vistas.
