Beginning with a simple concept merging two qualities of interior space – areas of clearly defined function (bathrooms, kitchen) separated by loosely defined, multi-functional in-between spaces – the long house design bends to accommodate access, views, topography, and protected outdoor spaces. While the defined areas maintain their rectangular layout and have flat ceilings in the final configuration, the in-between spaces are oddly shaped and have high ceilings exposing the complex forms at roof intersections.
Where the exterior is monolithic in color and form, the interior of the house is a reverse hierarchy of texture, material, and color. The large social and multifunctional spaces are defined by complex volumes and simple white surfaces, plain-sawn plywood clads the “buildings within the building”, and bright color highlights secondary spaces such as the stair as counterpoints to the overall logic of the house.
