deering Residence

A series of platforms are disposed around a central stair allowing varying ceiling heights and spaces. The two end walls have few openings because of adjacent houses, but the two long facades reveal a structural system of exposed block inside and outside, plus the varying levels of interior platforms. The vertically floating space is terminated and dominated by a huge screened-in porch into which all the rooms open.
