The urban lot is filled to the edges and yet there is a sense of openness and spaciousness to the entire structure and site. The roof (like the walls) has a series of perforations that are essentially frames without windows, open to the sky above.

Privacy is accomplished in the layering of wall elements – overlaps created between the outside and inside structures. The result is a living area with a few minimalist furniture objects that is at once completely permeable but also visually separated from the street beyond.
