This is a three-story, three-bedroom home on site sloping back to the Roslyn Urban Forest. The high and tight volume takes advantage of its view by perching the living space on the top floor with a ribbon of light-filled windows and vaulted ceilings.
This accessory dwelling unit is designed to adapt to any context. It has a lower bedroom and an open upstairs living space. Intelligent framing, high-performance envelope, and small footprint make it a lean, affordable backyard ADU.
This is a dense residential development on two east-facing sloped sites. It embraces the challenge of meeting housing density needs on problematic lots. These will be affordable, net-zero energy homes.
A modest façade belies this highly functional, open, accessible home. Designed to be active and efficient in all four seasons, the home allows for fresh air ventilation in the summer and passive solar heating in the winter.
