Leavengood Residence

  • The weight of the house is cantilevered through a series lofty columns, as if hovering above the ground.

  • There is a two-story, screened patio between the two modular block spaces, connected to multiple openings.

  • It has bamboo blinds and glass screens that provides varying level of transparency.

  • Like in the Deeds Residence- It is composed of horizontal roof volumes, shielded by wooden framing, it has an interior screened patio and uses precise craft. Similar concepts from other projects have been composed into this plan to create a new vibrant composition.

  • It has been demolished.
