This project is a family house for five people. The site is long and narrow like the bed of an eel, and is 20 feet by 60 feet.
The location was initially difficult to maximize sunlight because of the surrounding houses that crowded the site. However, through a series of steps a resolution was achieved. First, three parking spaces were created at the owner’s request.
The rooms were then placed for the parents and their mother. However, it was also difficult to make enough space for the family room and children’s rooms. Due to the limited amount of space, the ceiling was raised, which in turn let the sunlight enter from the loft and rooftop balcony, resulting in rooms that felt visually wider.
