A parametrically modeled rainscreen wraps the exterior of the prototype. The louver density registers interior conditions, such as desired light exposure, as well as reflecting the prototype’s specific context. In addition to modulating heat gain and light exposure, the screen can be adjusted to best suit building orientation and context. The skin permits variable degrees of enclosure, transparency, and privacy; allowing the prototype to stand alone or withstand repitition.
The hybrid butterfly roof directs water toward the natural filtration system which can be seen from both the interior and exterior. The filtration system feeds a rain garden located in the back yard.
The program is consolidated into living, service and private bays allowing for efficient use of floor space and utilities.
