Description from the architect:
This 7,200 square-foot lot was an abandoned brown-field site, vacant since 1992. The architect/owner used the space to build a private, urban residence for his family with an on-site architecture studio.
The residence is a stucco box resting on and supported by Corten steel wall planes, providing both privacy and noise attenuation. The main living area is surrounded by a reflecting pool on one side and a glass floor on the other. Below grade, where the office and recreation facilities reside, the glass floor/ceiling liberates the space and allows ample natural light.
The house is open and flowing extending the livable space into the private garden and reflecting pool. Boundaries are dissolved and extended through sliding panels and lightness, transparency, and expansive views.
