A Simple Terrace House is a minimalist residence created by American architect Erik L’Heureux of Pencil Office. Pencil Office’s design leadership is by Erik L’Heureux. Erik migrated to the equator from New York in 2003. Despite his cool climate background, he has built a thriving and creative practice, with a specialty in designing for the dense equatorial city. The home is constructed mainly of concrete, which is left exposed throughout the interior. The upper level features a terrace as well as a skylight in order to maximize natural lighting.
