The house is located on a rectangular corner lot, with this opportunity of 2 exposed view from the street , we attempted to create a linear model for the house. Even as shown on the plan with the spaces divided by small pocket gardens, the house is bound by a continuous strip. The strip is clearest on the north wall that connects the canopy of the ground floor to the roof eaves then to the wall and back. There is also a strip that binds the dining area to the garage in relation to the massing at the front. Linearity can be seen almost at every aspect , from the plan to the elevations. The flat roof , massing and the random linear strips

construction photos – front facade
north view – showing clearly the linearity of the continuous strip, running from a canopy to the wall and the roof eaves.
southeast view – the brown massing , where the masters t&b is situated – seems to be exactly inserted among the interconnected planes – we aim to create a very architectonic approach.
