Located on a lot in a mixed-use neighborhood, this house is designed to clearly redefine the urban edge it shares with its adjacent streetscape in order to create an inner sanctum and refuge. As a small mid-block building with a zero lot line, the house maximizes its daylight exposure and natural ventilation by carving a rectangular volume out of its whole to create an interior courtyard that serves and connects every space of the house.
Conceptually conceived as a choreography of various material qualities, layers of varying transparency and color dance together forming spatial devices throughout the house. This allows visual privacy and spatial definition to exist without compromising daylight exposure.
