2-4-6-8 House

The 2-4-6-8 House is located in Venice. The studio, designed by Thom Mayne and Michael Rotondi of Morphosis Architects in 1978, is a simple cube, clad in gray asphalt shingles, with a hipped roof. The studio has one window on each of its four sides, and the windows are in the dimensions, 2'x2', 4'x4', 6'x6', and 8'x8', thus the name of the project. It was one of Morphosis' earlier projects. The window frames are bright yellow, with blue lintels, and a red scupper creates a joyous color combination against the gray asphalt shingle.
