The clients for this residential project are an art dealer and a cellist. There are two additional units for rent that are intended for artists and musicians to temporarily live and work onsite while being mentored by the clients. The intention of this design is to create connections between the creative spaces through light, views, and boundaries by deploying permeable conditions along the procession. In opposition, each living unit restricts light, views, and boundaries to create isolation. Structure is then leveraged to define outdoor spaces and create cohesion between each of the masses.
