ToDD Residence: A White, Two-Story Volume with Functional Spaces

ToDD Residence 15

This awesome residence is designed by SkB Architects with a design that comes from the concept of how to create an urban farmhouse. This concept also includes finding a way to push the limits of the usable space of the house within its very restricted footprint. Located in Seattle, WA, ToDD Residence has a white, two-story volume that contains some functional spaces.

With a play on a scale in mind and an economy of size, this awesome house consists of two distinct masses. These masses can complement one another in color, function, and size. The functional spaces in the house volume are sleeping, eating, and living space. The volume also takes a lot of advantages of its height to maximize the house space within.

This project is also trying to find the best way to push the usable space’s limits within its footprint. The primary mass of this house is anchored by a deep gray, single-story volume where guest spaces and a home office are located. These spaces are interconnected by an outdoor terrace that used as an additional room.

The scale’s economy is carried throughout the house through the planning’s spatial exercise for the necessity and excess. A deeper sense of unity in this house can be achieved by utilizing provisions such as a galley kitchen with an open built-in, pantry shelving, and also paring down the living spaces’ size and bedrooms to their minimums.
