The goal of this final assignment was to make isometric drawings and model an existing home, and then make changes to the home while using the system employed by the original architect. I worked with the Fosc House by Pezo von Ellrichshausen, which has several distinctive features. It is a hexagonal shape with many windows of varying sizes. The home is also built around a central staircase connecting all three floors. For the changes, I shifted each of the floors several feet in different directions, trying to keep with the irregularity of the windows and house shape. I left the staircase as the central point of the home.
