Project Description

The site conditions catalyzed the complete reorientation of the dwelling to take advantage of the front-to-rear prospects of light and privacy not normally afforded to urban houses. The 3300 square-foot house now celebrates its ‘back’ rather than avoiding the al- leyway and areas traditionally relegated to utility. The addition of the reinterpreted glass Oriel window allows western light to imprint the life of the house – in the dining room, allowing a quick open-air meal – in the living room, providing an unusually broad urban panorama. Conversely, the top floor, remote from the life of the lower levels, takes a celestial orientation with the master bath lit alternately by moon and sun.
