Size: 4,600 square feet
Market: Single Family Residential
Scope: Structural Engineering
Two-story residence over a full height habitable basement. Situated on a corner lot, this residence includes a large kitchen, living room, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, plus a family room, office, gym and wine room. A floating slender, staircase leads up to the first floor, where bedrooms and bathrooms are located. Combining comfort and lightness, and the challenge of the small lot, the architects were able to find the right balance between open and closed areas, different materials and volumetric compositions throughout the design.
