New Construction

A flat and empty lot in the Old Enfield neighborhood is a rare find and the architect wasn’t going to let this property’s hefty 40’ frontyard setback be a barrier. Instead, she chose to place the main house at an angle to the street and property lines, while keeping the carport/guest house parallel. This orientation creates intriguing trapezoidal pockets of exterior space around the home including an intimate side courtyard featuring a folded perforated metal stair. The subtle exterior gives a nod to the established neighborhood, meanwhile the interior explores volume and texture with a three-story dining room, exposed structural features and natural materials.
