Architectural projects can have very different aesthetic priorities, in some cases striving for a distinctive presence, and in others aiming to blend into its surroundings. Despite its punchy contemporary style, the Hidden House falls into the latter category, squeezed into a tiny suburban lot and enveloped in a minimalist blanket of nearly featureless black cladding.

But should you happen upon the private front courtyard of the Teatum + Teatum residence, you will discover a set of laser-cut steel doors embellished with an elaborate pixelated pattern, providing a pinch of visual intrigue. The Hidden House may appear to be completely windowless, until you glimpse a cluster of protruding skylights that cover the roof of the narrow home.
