Project Description

The barcode house prototype dedicates the long narrow lot to an open living space that connects the front street to the backyard through a series of thresholds. The open first floor is utilized for communal living spaces while the bedrooms are tucked into a compact volume on top. A series of floating walls that contain different programmatic elements divide the long volume into zones making each area more distinct. The walls also form a gradient, going from more opaque to more transparent towards the backyard, preserving privacy from the front porch while retaining openness from the backyard.
