The proposal for this residence is initiated through the use of two didactic spatial types: universal space and discrete space. These discrete volumes or “monitors” become the generator of the spatial, structural, and tectonic organization of the project. The space between monitors is where the primary view and light giving spaces of the house are located: Living Room, Master Bedroom, Entry Sequence are all given primary consideration. The secondary spaces become the monitors and provide an opposition to the flowing space around them. The monitors also regulate daylight in a particular way, which brings a dramatic and varied spatial phenomena to the project.
