Oak Ridge House

A three-bedroom single family home with open living/dining space and detached screen porch and pool. The L-shape house plan consists of a public wing designed like a courtyard sitting between the street and the private rear yard, and a more private bedroom wing along the south side of the property. An inner green rear yard is an extension of the living space connected by a full wall of curtainwall. The design comfortably accommodates daily living patterns and is durable and ecologically mature. Direct and indirect light color and characterize interior spaces throughout the day. The sun is directly harnessed to produce energy and heated water. The material pallet builds space for experiences through expanded contrasts; between rough to smooth, hard and soft, cool and warm.
