This 4 bedroom house is an exercise of planar compositions, solids and planes perched above glass panels. It has a certain ” prarie house” feel due to the low pitched roof. The front most wall is white canvas juxtaposed with wooden slats and a horizontal window, while the other wall serves like a backdrop complementing the canvas.
the plan has a central circulation element with the stairs on the center that divides the social spaces , service spaces and the guest spaces.
the family room overlooks the foyer, while the bedrooms are flanked on one axis.
