Lakes Residence

The home was specifically designed for a family of four and two beagles in the 30-year-old lakes community of tempe. The desire for as much exterior yard on a relatively small lot led to an efficient stacking of two levels. The exception to the stacking is a ground face cmu clad "container" which is a tandem four-car garage on the south which slips through the envelope becoming kitchen, utility room and master bath, and dramatically cantilevers to the north as the master bedroom. Other containers clad in various materials such as bamboo and translucent glass house bedrooms, bathrooms, and utility functions. Juxtaposed to the programmed containers are flexible spaces that can adapt over time or for special events. Unifying the composition is a wrapping envelope that emerges from the ground and ends as an indirect light fixture illuminating the great room and entry. This wrapper is opaque on the east and west and provides a deep roof overhang on the south. The form is three feet thick which allows for structure, storage, and utilities.
