My obsession of the 'small house' continues. I can only hope it's becoming a bit more refined. Taking influence from the neighborhood we live--an historic area full of bungalows and prairie style homes--I'm trying to reimagine the small cottage home with a contemporary flare. And why do subtle when bold, clean lines can create a real dialogue?
These images are one of a few concept sketches Bart and I developed for a client who needed a little 'eye candy' for a planning and zoning presentation.
The idea was to organize the core building utilizing classic facade rules while invoking the bungalow style. Intersecting the building is the modern touch. It intersects the interior circulation to both organize the space and bring in light.
More development is needed, of course. Baby steps. Stay with me. Plans, elevations, sections, and materials to come.
