A grand central volume traverses the plan within the ‘natural’ profile of the roof spanning this single level family home. The extension and termination of the roof at its higher level provides the street presence critical to the typology, but so often merely applied in pastiche. Two skilions provide a tall symmetrical foil to the entry then recede to allow light into courtyards and deep into the living spaces at the rear of the plan.

The planning investigates the requirements of typically smaller families within generous modern space delivering high quality design at a competitively affordable price less than $1000/m2.
