The subtle exterior of this newly-built modern home complements the established neighborhood, while the interior explores volume and texture by way of a three-story dining room, exposed structural features and natural materials. To provide a point of interest, maximize available space and optimize energy efficiency, the Architect chose to orient the main house on a true East-West axis while the carport/guest suite building remains parallel to the street.
This orientation sets the Woodlawn Residence at an angle to the street and property lines, thus creating intriguing trapezoidal pockets of exterior space around the home including an intimate side courtyard featuring a folded perforated metal stair.
