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.
As for the ceilings, we decided not to do anything about them. That’s why the luminaires are surface-mounted and rotatable. On the one hand, they will lay emphasis on the complex geometry of the wall, on the other hand – they will provide perfect illumination of the room and working area when necessary
To meet this challenge, the conventional plan and section has been radically redefined.The stair and elevator core are pushed up against the street façade, instead of running along one of the party walls. As a result, loft-like spaces run fluidly the entire length of the 38-foot-deep building, rather than being compartmentalized into small front and back rooms
