Project Description

This design for a house consists of two bars stacked perpendicular to one another. The assignment prompt was to reinterpret a section drawing that was given to us (of an unknown building). The provided section showed a ground floor with a cantilever above it, projecting out of a steep hillside. This reinterpretation finds an inherent proportional logic in the given section by basing the design off a 15’x15’ modular system, in the form of an asymmetrical cross. Two retaining walls amplify the cross form of the building, as well as the formal thrust into the hillside.
