RUTLEDGE: A Trapezoid-Shaped House with A More Expansive Interior and New Minimalist Details

RUTLEDGE 9

This post-modern hillside house was originally built in the ’80s. RUTLEDGE has a trapezoid shape with a distinctive rounded tower. Blue Truck Studio renovates this house to create a more expansive interior. Some new minimalist details are also added and combined with crafted elements to create a warm atmosphere inside the house.

This trapezoid-shaped house is a mishmash of styles that sits on a triangular lot. There is also a distinctive rounded tower in the corner of the house. The architect leans into the house geometry for the renovation and creates a more expansive design for the house interior. This expansive design can deliver more spaces with a better function.

On the second floor of the house, a reconfigured kitchen features a trapezoid island that can echo the entire unique shape of the house. This unique shape can be found on some spots such as a bathroom, spiral stair, and even the structure of the house. This project is not only about a house transformation but also about an attractive living place for everyone who visits it.

The architect also added some new minimalist details to this house to create a decorative look. The details are also combined with crafted elements such as a tapered reclaimed post. This element can bring a quiet, warm aesthetic sense to the unusual spaces of the house and connecting those spaces into one.
