Craftsman- style homes

 

Craftsman style

This is my own home in Forest Park, featuring a large single story floor-plate- a rarity in the mid-city (although there is a future second floor with an additional 1500 square feet.) The house is designed to minimize its apparent size and blend with the scale of nearby homes by dividing it into two components. The plan is essentially 2 parallel lines joined at a single corner. The middle projection ties both components together into one composition or creates an end piece that allows each component to be viewed separately while retaining balance and proportion.

the projecting bedroom ties the 2 compositions together so that both can be viewed separately. See the beginnings of the right composition in the photo.

this shows the unique characteristic of the right hand composition. The portion of the house set back includes all the public spaces. A walkway leads from the street, traversing the front of the house and leading the visitor through several courtyards of various scales.
