Architectural Trendspotting: Negative Space

Some time ago I came upon this story of the House In Fontinha (shown above) and was intrigued by the ‘cutout’ entrance. The simplicity of negative space creating an entrance is not seen in run-of-the-mill design. That image got tucked away for future reference…

Now is that time. Recently my feeds have shown a series of similar spaces based upon the absence of structure. The engineering on display ranges from simple to complex, the results are always eye-catching.

Many are entrances, some include room for a car, a few become enclosed deck space (where lack of structure allows enhanced views).
