TERRACE HOUSE

Our interest in vernacular form and culture is most evident in the origins of this building. Grounded in the rudimentary structures of the plains Indians this residence captures the essence of dwelling as the four elements; earth, air, water, and fire drive the design. Out of the earth swell the three strong horizontal forms of the complex that are each focused on the exterior space with water at its core. Forming a vertical axis to this monolith is a dynamic timber tower that rises up to provide cover, light, and natural ventilation for the communal living areas.
