Field Houses

Field Houses is a progressive development of three private residences on a large, central city subdivided lot. The site is an open field, sloping to the north and anchored by a 120’ fir tree.  The project adds the dimension of financial sustainability to the usual planning measures by allocating an accessory dwelling unit to each residence that can serve as a separate income producing rental unit.  To provide privacy to each home in this higher density environment, the houses each look uphill and create a series of south facing outdoor spaces, each allowing the adjacent rooms to expand out to the surrounding gardens.
