Our Avenue F Residence was conceived as a transition node between exterior and interior realms. A generous covered front porch, extending as a carport canopy, frays the volumetric edges of the main entry. An intersecting volume continues the low profile across the street edge, reducing the impact of the two story main volume beyond. Entry into the home remains compressed by a spine running the length of the home allowing the primary spaces to unfold along a subtly defined axis. One is carried through the house with Living and Dining directly linked on one side, and the Kitchen and Stair opposite. The spine leads to a covered back patio, mimicking the front, which offers the same soft transition into the exterior. A lap pool and fire pit compose with the two-story guest suite, set back from the outdoor rooms by a simple but effective wood slat screen wall at the exterior stair. The master suite overlooks both the front and rear scenes, perched among the tree canopy, and completing the façade compositions with tight modern detailing.
