The residence maximizes a compact footprint to achieve the primary objective of engaging the multiple landscapes of the property. High use spaces are located on the main level to directly access the exterior via the Patio and Balcony. The Master Suite is located on the upper level to create a “retreat” from the activities of the home, while being connected quickly by descending the stair to the hub of the main level or surveying the property from the Roof Deck. Utilitarian spaces are located on street level. Three pairs of pocketing glass doors act as valves to affect the interior use and exterior connection with the landscape, while modulating the home’s environmental exposure.
