Different cooks can interpret the same ingredients in different ways; the same is true for architectural design. Though the client’s requirements and the lot may be the same, the interpretation and execution of the design will vary from designer to designer.
This is an example of our efforts to foster creativity and showcase our capabilities through a concept design. This house designated Narrow House Scheme One is an example our efforts.
At the left side of the house are the common areas- the Living area continuing to the Dining area with the Lanai acting as an extension. The Main kitchen is open to the Dining area making the space seem larger with island counter or bar serving as buffer to the Dining area. The Guest room is at the rear of the house to provide privacy and cross ventilation
The Garage is located at the right side making access to the Laundry and Utility Area easier. Driver’s and Maid’s room are on the same side.
With all the public or common areas on the ground floor, the private areas were all located on the second floor. The Masters Bedroom is located to the East for morning sun exposure and provided with its own walk in closet and Toilet and Bath. Bedrooms are also provided with either a private bath or a common facility. A study or office was located adjacent to the Master bedroom. The Main Stair is located at the front for ease of access. Clerestory windows provide natural illumination for the second floor hallway. Bedrooms are located on corners to provide for cross ventilation.
The house is modern contemporary with stone accents and minimal decorative elements.
