SHOTGUN HOUSE

This residential project occupies a corner lot and addresses specific site relationships with forms and the spaces created between that outline a courtyard. The two-bedroom house is a long, thin, rectangular shape sheathed in traditional stucco with flush steel windows that emphasize the tight skin. The broad south exposure maximizes solar gain with windows that look into the yard. The house interior is a shotgun plan, open from end to end, of public space below and private upstairs. A core sheathed in recycled plastic anchors the interior and holds the mechanical necessities. Most of the steel is recycled as well as the cabinets and flooring which we made from recovered content compressed plastic.
