In October 2010, Stephen Davy Peter Smith Architects was commissioned by Peter and Melanie Domb to design a house of modern design, with minimal impact on the environment and able to accommodate their burgeoning art collection.

The architects had worked with Peter Domb for many years in his capacity as a commercial developer. They met to look around the site at the bottom of the garden of the Dombs’ existing house, discussing their aspirations for the scheme and possible options.

Invisible Hotel/ Transparent City in Athens, Greece by blp architects

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: blp architects

Invisibility is essentially a question of transparency.

In 1963 Colin Rowe in his article Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal set the framework: \”At the beginning of any inquiry into transparency, a basic distinction must perhaps be established. Transparency may be an inherent quality of substance- as in a wire mesh or glass curtain wall, or it may be an inherent quality of organization\”. As an organization quality \”transparency means a simultaneous perception of different spatial locations\”.
