3rd Street Residence

Walking between a thin, two-story volume and existing pecan trees, the visitor enters in the middle of the house, facing a small courtyard holding a special Blue Atlas Cedar.  An open living space stretches the width of the lot and a generous porch opens onto a private yard, enclosable by a curtain.

Three courtyards expand the perceived size of their adjacent rooms.  A collection of monitors introduce light from unexpected sources and walnut cabinets, mill-finished steel, black ceramic tile, and Shou Sugi Ban cedar add material richness.
