Outline

This plan for a partially completed house addresses two issues: client needs that cannot be met through standard housing-development plans, and situations in which start-to-finish construction poses a timeline or cost issue. The design, comprising a wooden frame with basic residential components and staircases, is intended to be submitted for permitting and constructed at this stage. Owners may choose to live in the structure as-is, or to add interior finishes at any later date and in any manner that matches their lifestyle. They may fill in the frame with three-dimensional elements. The basic plan has a rectangular shell and three courtyards to ensure abundant natural light while also securing privacy to increase freedom during future remodels, making this a new model urban residence.
