The primary program brief from the couple who owned the house was a desire to build a house that was to be their ‘fortress from the cacophony of the world outside’ while creating a sizable space to be used frequently for entertaining friends and guests.
Referencing forts as a primer the formal development of the project attempts to balance a need for privacy-protection from the outside while developing layered and tiered open spaces for social engagement.
