Amber-Anchored House

This Amber-Anchored house fosters a sense of community and togetherness for a family displaced from the Amber coast. Through the use of an ancient Baltic bath house ritual sequence housed in the Amber tower, the family can both remember and teach traditions from home left behind. The Amber tower and the light beam skylight envelop and guide the circulation and organization of the house as the entrance through the Amber tower wraps one around and guides by light to the seemingly open upper floor. The upper floor is only separated in zones by light and furniture, so it acts as one whole and encourages time spent together.
