The design focus was to develop a systematic approach for the inhabitation of 25-foot-wide lots in Portland. The proposition was that spatial qualities of place and materials can be emphasized over a singular prototype — this design is one possibility from a series of variations.

 

The structural system allows for distinct modulation of each dwelling. The construction utilizes robust base structures and services to provide raw loft-like spaces for differing uses and changing needs over time.

 

This project was one of 49 selected for publication in the Design Excellence Monograph.
