The house celebrates and reminds us of the social importance of the front porch. Its material palette is chose to be deliberately commensurate with established patterns. The form of the carport and absence of an enclosed garage increases the likelihood of spontaneous contact between neighbours in the few seconds between car and front door. The house is respectful to the context from within as well.

Views from the house’s horizontally oriented windows offer spectacular panoramic views of neighbourhood houses, churches and schools that are not commonly experienced by residents.
