It is a house that represents a return to the original three-bedroom, two-bathroom program. The focus is to maintain the close connection between the street and the house based on the neighborhood tradition of socializing from stoops and porches.

The scheme of this house can be seen in one bedroom downstairs and two upstairs, focusing on the three outdoor spaces’ creation as well. Each of them can be accessed from a generous, two-story central space.
