Bethune

Brick at the existing facade of the townhouse is used to define the perimeter and ground of the courtyard but with applying contemporary construction techniques. As the brick ground floor moves away from the house the material gradients into landscape. As the brick wall fold down on the west side to create a sculptural gesture for waterfall, a green wall appears behind which continues to the rear wall. The formal language of the waterfall is repeated in the design of the custom coffee tables, dining table and benches which are also designed by Buro.
