Fairacres Residence

This project involved the design of a house for an artist. The "parti" is organized into three volumes connected by links. This organization and window placement serve to frame the exterior within the context of an established suburban neighborhood with mature trees. Window placement also worked to frame views of specific trees and sky, but also to enhance the play of light within the interior living spaces throughout the day and year.
