Mahallat Residential Building No3 / CAAT Studio

A local stone seller tapped CAAT Studios to design a house that made use of the area’s abundant travertine supply. Instead of building a flat facade, CAAT decided to treat the travertine like bricks, creating a stepped pattern that gives the exterior a wavering, geometric appearance. The house has a simple box layout, but CAAT was able to add some playfulness to the design with the exterior pattern. Four windows are framed by a curving wall of bricks that appear to almost peel away from the the glass. That same curve can be seen on the interior wall of the home, too — via Curbed
