Sextioned:  The client’s plot was divided into two pieces when the city decided to put a road through her and her neighbors houses. Hence the name sprang- sextioned-symbolizing the act of cutting through. It is the concept of the house. The façade is the representation of the sectioned.

Site & codes:  the shape of the land and the codes shape the basic form. The invisible height regulatory lines and other code lines define the volumes and angles of the house. How convenient!. The form is an inevitable result of maximization without any design intent. The codes and the shape of the land have designed the house.

Expanded metal finish effect: The heavy concrete and the sharp angles are blurred by another skin of expanded metal.
