projects / programmatic topography
Whereas the original modernist residence lies parallel to the site’s ridge, a new addition delves into the creek bed below, situating its programmatic elements [antechamber, wardrobe, bedroom] at descending elevations.

This shifting anchors the addition to its site, while taking advantage of both prospective and introspective views of place. A perforated shell wraps the elements together, creating interstitial thresholds for the site to grow through, further embedding the addition into its surroundings.
