THREE PIECE HOUSE
Three Piece House is a courtyard house, designed for a couple looking to downsize and live more simply.
The project places a modest, single storey house and a studio on its site. These buildings are skewed to follow the site’s boundaries, and are clustered to create privacy on this exposed corner lot. Courtyards and gardens step and ramble between the buildings, and are as much a part of the house as the interior spaces.
The main house is composed of two pavilions - one for living, and one for sleeping. The study corridor, which bridges between them, faces out to the garden and receives northern sun.
