Knott Residence

The regular rhythm of the plywood vaulted roof is juxtaposed with a free division of spaces. The intersection of walls with roof became more clearly manageable than in the Healy Guest House, and each room could become complete within itself, while still allowing the whole to be implied from the single room. A series of thrust and counterthrust created by the one-directional space of the vault organizes the whole.
