Norwood Divide _ 2011
Business In The Front, Party In The Back
Norwood Divide is a single family residence that acknowledges its immediate context with proportion, scale, and form, and manages to evolve an additional level of modern sophistication. The street elevation of the residence is contextual with two defining gabled wall ends. The rear of the house celebrates a departure from this composition with a change in materiality and the addition of a contemporary dormer with a shallower roof pitch. Medium brown stucco is the primary exterior material and an Ipe rainscreen clads the rear dormer and entrance porch. Efficiency guides the interior layout and the amount of space available on the tight lot is maximized.
