The initial site evaluation was to develop two homes on one lot. Although the site was large enough for two urban homes the client decided to build one larger up-scale home to allow it to stand out on the market.
Based on the context, 929 takes advantage of downtown corner views by allowing the architecture to erode away toward entry and view. The home transitions from solid to open as you walk through the plan from alley to front street/view by exposing the structure and outdoor space. The major spaces of the home (living, dining, kitchen, decks, master bed) occupy view focused positions (eroded areas) of the plan offering a sense of openness.
