Before the real estate market made its famous fall in 2008, the expansion of the American Dream Home infused with utopian bubbles, was the subject of development. This era marked a significant shift in the concept of the suburban house moving from an extroverted cabin to an introverted block of detached function and appearance. Favoring these innovative conditions and taking advantage of a series of exceptions within the building code allowed us to fulfill the owner’s dream of maximizing the buildable area of the lot. The original concept for this project was developed from a series of shifted plateaus with topological relationships. This hillside property came with a series of parameters imposed by the clients program and his demand to maximize the area of the building as well as restrictions imposed by the building codes that most times amount to three dimensional interpretations of legal communique. These parameters were ultimately responsible for the extension of the mentioned planes, which in turn were connected together to form the vertical faces of the model in a direct node to node fashion. The result was a skeletal frame that was optimized in consideration of structural elements. As a result of this non-formal approach, the house became an expansive 8200 sqft space. The upper floors were made to hover over a free-form floor plan on the deck level that integrates the indoor outdoor facilities to activate the site.
