St. Emanuel House by Ronnie Self
Ronnie Self is the architect of this 150 m² modern house situated in Houston, Texas, USA. The concept of the building is to create a more friendly and private atmosphere among the city’s busy streets. That is the reason the whole house is elevated from ground level and raised above the noise and dirt of the surroundings.
