Layered House is a house, located in Somerset (UK) that has been recently transformed by British architects of the studio Skene Catling de la Pena. Reconstruction was performed using local materials, using modern technology “triplex”.
Layered wall of the house are made by alternating the wooden boards and laminated glass, allowing sufficient space for the internal transmittance, but devoid of the traditional transparency.

In addition, the outside boards were crude and uncouth, but inside they were carefully polished. The glasses are connected with the boards through the rubber seal, and the top joints additionally secured by foam, which helps to seal the walls, as well as sound and heat insulation.
Expressive mix of rough untreated wood and polished, laminated glass looks spectacular and original. In the evening, the house looks like a mysterious radiant light, delicately hiding its inner contents. And within such an unusual combination gives the impression of an ultra-modern building material, worthy to be used in the most sophisticated interiors.
