East 6th Street House in South Boston, MA by Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

 
July 31st, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal

This speculative development was built on a rear parcel with restricted views to the street, code restricted openings for windows, and less desirable views of the adjacent lots. The design re-directs the focus to an interior environment with a sun filled “skylight stair hall” and “rear light shaft” that brings natural light to all corners of each floor.

Realizing the strengths of the local trades, and the neighborhood context of boxlike structures with varied siding, the forms and materials are re-interpreted through simple geometric volumes and a siding pattern of fiber-cement clapboard in various standard widths.
