woo house

cambridge, massachusetts

This house for an architect, pianist and two children is conceived of as a place of repose within the city. The house is sited behind an existing colonial house, screened from the street. By using the existing house as a foil, a dialogue between old and new is established. The house focuses inward towards a two story living space which is surrounded by the family’s private rooms. A zone of circulation mediates between the two areas.
