Private Residence

Nicosia, Cyprus

The idea for this residence for a young family on a suburban corner lot was informed by thinking how as in certain works of art, an entire microcosm can be accommodated and expressed within the restrictive volume of a cube of space.  The microcosm of the act of dwelling is expressed not only by spatial folding within the given volume but with the juxtaposition of contrasting materials including water that define horizontally and vertically habitable space.
