Shell House

We’re thinking it could be called the Shell House, or else maybe The House of Four Gables, Two of Which Are Oddly Interior Pseudo Gables and Not Really Gables At All. It’s very simply organized along three dividing axes (two in section (shown above), the third in plan): Public / Private (vertical division, as is standard in most houses) Us / Them (lateral division at the foyer between Kim & I and children & guests (hence the two extra gables). Front / Back (longitudinal division between “back of house” dense services, plumbing, etc. and open, flexible "front of house" spaces) This is pretty early in the design process. It still needs a basement and lots of service and storage space design, plus some overall tinkering with scale and square footage. But I think it succeeds as a diagram of how we eventually want to live.
