Break It Up
Industrial concrete blocks
were used to create a veneer for the exterior of this family home in Ottawa, Canada. The designers developed the “basket-weave” pattern for the concrete blocks to break down the scale of the looming structure. Because the blocks could not be cut, the dimensions of the house were set based on multiples of the pattern.
