Rope house

Contemporary Rope House by Bates Masi Architects

The design studio Bates Masi Architects has completed this original Robins Way Residence in New York, USA. The client, an interior designer and DJ, has planned a complete renovation of the house, built back in the 1960s to come here on weekends. The main goal was to bring modern spirit in this historic building, paying great attention to acoustic and lighting. Thus, a natural rope was appeared as a key design element. Between the existing ceiling joists, the rope was woven through a digitally fabricated framework. A large sliding door is woven with the same rope to provide privacy from the neighbors and shield the sun at various times of the day. The skeleton of the house and was history preserved, so this project combines old and new design solutions. Via
