Roof Plan Second Floor Plan First Floor Plan space, then you walk through a little gate to that back court- yard, and there's a wooden enclosure. AT: There are windows in each building that are winking at each other. The porch on the bungalow opens to the porch on the ADU. They share a congenial but private relationship. On the interior, we wanted something very clean and mod- ern, but not too cold. Wall finishes are matte-finished drywall. The first floor has a polished slab floor, and it was pretty sim- ple and efficient from a budget standpoint. We did spend a lot on the NanaWall that allows the living room to close or open to the outdoor space. HM: You can fold it all the way or roll it around and subdivide the living/dining space. The living room can become open air, and the conditioned space is at the juncture of where the kitch- en is. Or it can slide around in an L and enclose the living room, then the whole first floor is undivided and conditioned. For a big chunk of the year, you're living in an almost Hawaiian liv- ing room. In these shoulder months, it's really nice to be able to quickly change the arrangement of indoor and outdoor space. There's also a great roof deck that makes that second-floor bedroom space feel big. I really have to brag on Aaron, because the thing I love best about this building is the folding form of the roof. There are some wonderful, extreme shapes to the space that make it feel airy and unique. It doesn't feel like a box. For me, this little building is like a little origami space that can fold into so many different ways to use it. That ability to morph your space according to who you are and how you're living is the key to such a small space.
