This small modern house is comprised of a series of parallel walls that provide layers of privacy and insulation from the sound of the nearby village. The walls project beyond the living spaces and ascend in height, building from a human-scale wall at the entry to a high wall along the center of the house. The walls diffract the sound waves moving past them, casting an acoustic shadow over the property to create a quiet outdoor gathering area.
To keep this home quiet, the walls are built with insulated concrete forms: a wall assembly nearly 20 inches thick, comprised of a poured concrete core, continuous from footing to roof, wrapped in insulating foam. These walls provide excellent thermal insulation and an extremely low sound transmission.
