Wraparound Residence: A Novel Approach to Raised Space

Lots near the water get a lot cheaper if you are just one or two plots removed from the water’s edge, which is turned from curse to blessing in this elevated home and its rooftop deck.

EnterArchitecture crafted this curved dwelling in response to the meandering waterway nearby, lifting it up as well to provide views around and above the neighbors.

While sculptural in appearance, the undulating roof (outside) and ceilings (inside) also respond to the needs of interior spaces while bringing in natural light.

The result is an almost Prairie-Style organic approach where function and form are pushed and pulled in tandem, all while keeping in mind the natural and artificial surroundings.
