To maximize lighting throughout the day, the Kenneth E Hobgood Architects 'Paletz Moi' House is constructed with a series of gridded, glass walls. Looking more like a greenhouse than a modern residence, the space is optimized to bring the outdoors in.

Since the clients work from home, they requested the surrounding greenery be considered as part of the home's architectural design. Long metal beams act as the structural skeleton, while maintaining a breezy, open-concept layout. Colorful contemporary furniture and clean-cut fixtures add character to this boxy abode. The home sits on top of a series of concrete blocks, providing the illusion of being up in the trees.
