Dwell Photo of the Week

The Delz Residence has been selected as Dwell's Photo of the Week

"Photographer Peter Molick took this photo of a former auto body shop in Houston that’s been converted into a modern residence and studio for an artist and engineer. Working with two aging metal warehouses,Content Architecture replaced the former garage doors with large windows and protected them with a steel canopy. A light well in the center of the residence helps brighten the deep interior and divides the public and private spaces. The smaller neighboring structure—which is connected by a shared patio space—was turned into a guesthouse and studio."
