Movements, spaces and volumes occur to fulfill various functional requirements through the architectural manipulation of materials, details and finishes. Two equal halves performing public and private functions are employed throughout horizontally and vertically.
Together the organization and expression of the building address the realities and difficulties of modern living in the city and as such attempts to redefine the typology of the urban townhouse.
The front facade derives its expression from the interior interplay of openness and privacy. It screens the house from the street through several layers: the stairway, the bookshelves, the solid wall with punched windows providing glimpses of the street, and the exterior perforated aluminum rain screen. Two narrow vertical glass slots run the full height of the facade, capturing light from the street while further accentuating the length of the spaces with continuous views from the front to the back of the building.
