A narrow, dense lot called for design solutions that supported the owners’ open, casual lifestyle at the same time it created a dramatic, luxurious and intensely built space. The single-family residential structure rises three levels, straight up, to afford city views; yet spaces flow openly between a formal living room, the inviting family area and the all-out glamour of the dramatic central staircase. Walls assert impose sculptural volume in steel, glass, stone and concrete, yet create light and delicacy that veil the structure’s intense efficiency and multi-level volume.

Un terreno estrecho y profundo necesitaba soluciones de diseño que se adaptaran al estilo de vida abierto y casual de los dueños, a la vez que creara un lujoso y espectacular espacio construido. La estructura residencial para una sola familia se levanta en tres niveles para aprovechar las vistas de la ciudad. Sin embargo, los espacios fluyen abiertamente entre un salón formal, la acogedora sala de estar y todo el glamour de la espectacular escalera central. Las paredes imponen un volumen escultural en acero, cristal, piedra y concreto, a la vez que crean luz y una delicadeza que ocultan la intensa eficiencia de la estructura y el volumen de varios niveles.
