The modestly sized C House is sandwiched between weatherboard cottages. In order to achieve a sense of volumetric grandeur and architectural delight that defies it’s compact size, the design departs from some normally rigid design principles in current residential architectural practice.

The design provides an orderly transition from public to private spaces, direct connection to private outdoor spaces and ample natural light at all times of the day. Yet, it breaks strongly with normal practice in it’s orientation and entry arrangement.

Rather than a north facing living room, the living space bunkers down between two tranquil courtyards with wide eaves.
