Shape Shifting To say that David took this idea up a notch is an understate- ment. Diagrammatically, he describes the design as a simple, folded origami tent draped over three service areas and circled by glass. The bar-shaped entry volume facing the street is clad in stone on both sides; it contains the laundry/mudroom, coat closet, and bike storage on the right, and the bath and closet for the front bedroom on the left. Inside the front door to the right is a roughly 25-foot-by-30-foot garage volume. Wrapped in sapele mahogany inside and out, it reads as a three-dimensional box that defines the entry gallery and, around the corner, the kitchen's back wall. To the left of the entry, a plastered core contains the baths and closets for the middle bedroom and rear master suite. Architects often use the proverbial nod to the neighborhood as an opportunity to riff on familiar forms, and that's true here This page: Wood, stone, and plaster "boxes" section off private and service spaces within the otherwise open "tent." 41 VOL. 5, 2018 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM
