PRIVACY ON SHOW
SPRING 2018 — RESIDENTIAL
In a mixed-use urban neighborhood, program arrangement and massing are employed to provide privacy within the Chappell-Smith Residence. The garage, owner entry, and guest suite are lowered to create separation from the main living spaces and buffer an adjacent commercial parking lot to the south. Upper level bedrooms and a vertical kitchen cabinetry wall split along an entry axis, yielding a double height living volume with backyard views. Skylights enrich the tall space and highlight the wrapping “catwalk” while solid walls screen an adjacent residence to the north. Vertical circulation, expressed in the exterior form, completes the composition.
