SHOTGUN HOUSE

This two-bedroom house is a long, thin, rectangular shape that creates a semi private south facing yard on the narrow site. It is sheathed in traditional three-coat 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. The public space is on the ground floor and private upstairs – accessed via a custom made steel stair. A core sheathed in recycled plastic anchors the interior and holds the mechanical needs. Most of the steel is recycled as well as the cabinets. The floors are tongue and groove oak.
