Architectural Design: New Haven Test

Author(s)

Project Description

Faced with a design prompt akin to micro-housing, the primary goal was to increase the occupant’s spatial experience. The manipulation of light, view, and height maintain both privacy and a sense of openness within the tenant and owner space. The eastern and western walls bring light across the walls in subtle ways while still maintaining privacy from the neighboring windows. The northern and southern walls are open to allow views out, visually expanding the space. Rather than having interior partition walls, level changes define social spaces such as the kitchen and the living room.
