Volume of Inhabitation

Tasked to design a multifamily residence in Washington Park, Providence on a 3,200 SF lot, we prioritized six actions for human inhabitation: a place to sleep, a place to work, a place to wash, a place to eat and a place to socialize.

The two units interlock with eachother and create simultaneous moments of presence and absence-through transparent mask fascades. The units sit diagonally on the site, following the hypothetical diagonal grain on the site.
