Black Brick House
Designed by architects Takero Shimazaki and Charlie Luxton, this 1960s house located outside London was given a fresh and modern look thanks to black-painted brickwork, large windows and new angular roof.
"Without any curtains or blinds, the house is a transparent black viewing box, its external walls reflecting or absorbing the surrounding nature throughout the season".
"Black was chosen to make the house recede into the shadows created by the surrounding woodlands," said the architects.
The white internal walls are complemented by oak joinery and wooden floors.
