The Hemocoel Residence features interweaving folded planes that create an interplay of large open spaces and smaller intimate spaces. Responding to the neighborhood’s low-slung 60’s and 70’s ranch-style houses, the Hemocoel roofs rise slowly from the sides. Narrow roof lines form a series of tiers that place the upper level of the two-story house back from the street. A vertical chimney element grounds the floating roofs, joining the open areas on the different levels. In collaboration with YS BUILT
