A single space designed like a warehouse; A singular roof with multiple built forms creating rooms and crevices within it. The special feature of the house is the sheath of artificial rain on its windward concrete wall that can be turned on to create a cooler microclimate when the wind blows through the porous barrier. Designed for family and friends the house exudes a candid personality, is honest, forthright and welcoming seeming much larger than it actually is through manipulation of the inside and outside.
