The efficiency of this home is achieved through the nearly-cubic proportion, maximizing the potential of its tight lot.

A slatted cedar awning is facing the street, providing shading and articulating the entry as well. A ribbon of windows on the second floor wraps around and introduces transparency.

A slatted wood material has been carried into the entry hall and it warps the central circulation core too. The texture of this material is used to emphasize navigating experience.

The restraint of the entry elevation at the waterside allows an exuberant two-story curtain wall to open the master suite and public spaces to their surroundings. The facade glows orange at sunset, transforming the house into a beautiful canvas for nature.
