Concept 
 
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. 

The Process

Pre-Design 
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.
Design 
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. 
Following the rule of general to specific the design started broad and worked toward the detail with the eroded concept. We started by massing out the areas of erosion compared to the more solid and private areas such as bedrooms and bathrooms. Once the massing and layout were developed details were added to intensify the language of the concept.
