The name of this project, Star House, is slightly misleading if you are to understand it's true function. To understand this project one needs to consider the difference between "House" and "Home." I work with many people every day that treat their profession like more of a home than the place they go home to in the evening, where their family and loved ones reside. When I think of home, that word connotes an escape from the world into a place of peace and rejuvenation. Someplace that can make you forget the labors of the day and remind you of the deeper meanings in life. This project by AGI Architects has a way of using the environmental features of the site to permeate tranquility into the abode, blocking out disruptions in lieu of the more majestic and awe inspiring elements of the world we live in, an architecture that may rightly be called home.
