On a half size lot, 75’x80’ this two story dwelling uses the space as efficiently as possible, the lower level consists of a master suite master bath, utility room, ½ bath and living/kitchen area, the upper level has 2 kid bedrooms a bath and a common area. The design blends itself with the massing of the neighborhood dwellings as to not call attention to itself as contrast on its context.

Because of the constraints of space the outdoor living space court its facing the street, it is screened by landscape in the form of banana trees which provide privacy. The perforated metal columns around the courtyard become lanterns at night.
