Barcode House Applies Horizontal & Vertical Lines for a Modern Effect

Designed by David Jameson Architect, the Barcode House is a one-of-a-kind, contemporary home that looks as if it has a barcode running up and down its glass exterior.

Just one of the design firm's innovative architectural accomplishments, the Barcode House is a freestanding home that used to be a row house. A stucco circulation tower acts as an anchor, merging the new house with the existing row house. Because of the space constraint of the site, the design of the house is narrow and vertically oriented; however, black steel rods that are horizontally placed across the house's glass walls work to balance the vertical effect. The house is spacious and open, with three levels, although the third is essentially an outdoor patio.
