House of Horns

WOJR: Organization for Architecture as Architects

House of Horns acts as an instrument to register the cycles of the day through six "horns" or differently oriented skylights and clerestories. Four of the horns comprise the main living space of the house—a large space that provides an open context for a more nomadic appropriation of space—which allows the occupants to discover the variable lighting conditions that the horns provide. The design of House of Horns enfolds an existing foundation that was intended to be the foundation for an elaborate "Spanish Style" home. Our intention is to aim to undermine the faux formalities of the previous version of the design (designed by another architect) in favor of a new form of coherence that synthesizes the particularities of the foundation with a new set of ordering principles.
