After staring at a one level building for a week there is a bit of a gasp when you see the first upper level wall tipped up. Especially when that wall is the highest point of a low sloped roof and is actually creating the parapet. We quickly accustomed to it as we saw that upper level begin to take its reaching form to the southern sky.
You can also see the floating form of the upper level corner defined as well as the covered space below it.
All of these walls will form parapets for the low sloping roof which will sit down within these walls.
The break at this exterior wall on the upper level frames another void that will be preserved through the upper level from one end to the other.
The west end of the house frames up the same as the east end, creating a symmetrical double and creating 4 defined corner masses to the house.
Like the studio, all the roof joists and plywood deck will be exposed to view in the house.
Here the sloping of the roof and the defining of the parapet walls begin to become visible.
The east and west side roofs slope to the middle of the house in two directions, directing water flow onto the middle roof, yet to be built.
The step down in grade from the main level to the studio creates a great view back up through the house.
The openings at the end of the house create views into the woods, and invite those in the house out into nature as the grades continue to step down.
