Restrained fenestration, without excessive structural span, clear the way for light and passage. The rooms and circulation are smartly organized and fashioned. For those developing their architectural hunches, it is worth being studious with this project, because of its economy of design. The length required for the stairs is almost more than half the total interior length. Architects with modern problem-solving skills can make unconventional spaces comfortable.

Simplicity is a solution that needs some commitment and discipline. Understanding application and function is a modern way to begin a design process. A primary residence functions as a place to live. A lot of residences today are probably on a commute and near a shopping area. Owners probably have jobs, carry some debt, and their income may mostly be applied to their house. It seems to be how urban and suburban life is for a lot of people working in a developed metropolitan area.

This is a place called ‘home’ to people who made something wonderful happen for themselves. They now own a home designed by an architect. Architects that skillfully design such a habitable solution should be more sought after by potential clients with ‘almost-possible’ financial capability. The first step to getting what you want is understanding what you want.
