Project Description

The focus of the RIFT is to create space and interconnections between spaces with non-orthogonal vectors – views, movement, voids. Space and depth is exaggerated in a particularly skinny lot (34ft) through skewing and rotating to gain area.  As such, a large volume housing separates smaller volumes (private bedrooms) above an open floor plan (living spaces), creating opportunities for one to catch glimpses of life above, or views down into spaces below.  This prototype would potentially allow for any number of volumes above, extending or shrinking to accommodate for a variation of sites and user requirements.
