Sited in a 1950’s era dense neighborhood in Tempe, Arizona, the Sosnowski Residence takes the form of a courtyard house defined by three sandblasted 8-8-16 standard gray CMU walls at the main level and an exposed Virendeel truss at the upper level that ultimately characterizes the project.

The main level’s CMU walls define the major public spaces of the project, which include an outdoor courtyard, living room, dining room, kitchen, and koi garden.  The public spaces are also flanked by the garage and guest bedrooms, in turn providing additional privacy from the street and the neighbors. The outdoor spaces maintain an open relationship to the residence by means of two 30’ wide expanses of operable sliding glass doors.  The master suite resides in the Virendeel truss above.  The integration of the courtyard and koi garden as an essential part to the daily experience enables the project to fully embrace the outdoor spaces of the front and back yards.

Chen + Suchart Studio, LLC

The investigation of design and architectural ideas at Chen + Suchart Studio, LLC involves a rich process where the tools of drawing and sketching by hand, model making, rendering, and computer associated methods are deployed. There exists no ordained methodology at which the design solution is arrived. Programmatic needs, conditions of the site, and attention to the client’s desires all serve to inform this process. Our focus intensifies when we examine the spatial experience of our work. This representation allows us to thoroughly explore the architecture as it will be experienced in its built construct. We do not impose a particular language to a design idea. Rather we allow the process to inform, and as a result allow our language to reinforce the inherent ideas latent within every project.
