The project was undertaken as a design-build venture with us as both designer and client.
Located at the end of a cul de sac abutting a creek where the city grid changes direction, it occupied an interestingly shaped lot.
It was important to finance construction entirely on credit and a shoestring budget.
We were keen to break the stereotypical architect career path and supervise ourselves.
The process extensively used scale models for geometric studies and fabrication. This was our first collaboratively built project.

Walls = Porosity and separation
