    Urban Residence

    This project is a renovation to an existing double-lot structure and a removal of built space for a garden. The building had most recently been an abandoned auto repair shop with a second floor apartment. The heavy timber structure is now exposed and subtly moves through the upper level — the sloping beams moving against the horizontal ceiling plane. On the ground floor, the deep steel beams define the room near the new walled garden.
