Corner House

Objective: Design a single family home for an affordable housing developer in a low-income area of New Haven, CT.

Response: This project sought to seamlessly fit into the surrounding neighborhood while exhibiting a contemporary architecture and way of life.  By consolidating the 'messy' bits of living into a full length volume on the ground floor and an array of fragments on the second, the corner house brings economy and beauty to a context where both are needed.
