This three-story steel-framed residence for a pair of artists includes studios for both. We paid particular attention to designing an exterior for the tall new structure that would blend seamlessly into the surrounding neighborhood, which was subdivided and developed several decades ago.The exterior color is close to the subdued shades of the surrounding buildings, while the strong horizontal line of the roofing materials echoes the horizontal lines of the siding joints. The windows are all of a uniform size, but because they are set at various heights it is difficult to tell from the outside where one story starts and the next ends. As a result, the sense of the building as a three-story structure is softened.
Once created, architecture has significant influence on townscape,
surrounding people as well as the environment, regardless of its background.
It will remain on that ground for decades
whether it blends into the location or not, or if it’s treasured.
No just design or capabilities, but focus on various architectural essence.
Timeless longevity endeared for years, and guarding people’s lives…
this is the concept we pursue.
