The main goal of this house is to give the feeling of openness and a large spatial quality while maintaining the dynamic qualities of a home. The strategy is to treat the massing as a series of stacking blocks that form a central atrium the ventilates and illuminates the central living area while passively helping to keep the house cool and breezy. The ground floor has a linear entrance sequence that is designed to create depth and a visual connection between the verandas and the atrium. A series of bridges and stairs connects the blocks creating a series of 3rd spaces that work as an extension of the shaded bedrooms. These can be used as multifunctional spaces. By arranging the program in this manner the house maintains a visual connection that cuts through different spaces giving the house a dynamic interaction. This effect is also designed to work spatially between the adjacent spaces. All spaces become linked in sequences: the living room, to the dining, to the kitchen; the living room to the family room, to the guest bedroom and veranda. Bedrooms to open study rooms. This also allows for modifications and expansions in the home once the family grows.
