House on the Hill
By introducing an open kitchen/ dining/ family/ living room within a normative twostory
Edwardian house, the project reinterprets urban family living. The thoughtful
meeting of old and new informs the design. A vertical space, crowned by a glass
skylight, connects to the new floor of sleeping functions. The ground plane is redefined
as a deck, over an art studio, extending the social space outdoors.
