Entry Description

The site is a vacant lot slotted in between two other similarly zoned houses. The constraints of limited access to nature requires a rethinking of how we can engage with the environment, especially with stunning views on all sides.
The strategy for the site was to maximize the possibility of using the building as an aperture for views not just of the mountains, the island, but also the sky. The final result is a happy compromise between the desire to meaningfully engage with Nature’s solar cycles, and the economics of building a simple-budget home.
