Tottenville Residence

Tottenville, Staten Island, NY


    Award of Excellence-2010, AIA Brooklyn Design Competition


    One-family luxury residence with two-car garage on long and narrow lot.


    The house was organized along east-west axis in order to allow some exposure to the quiet street and to be maximally opened to the deep forested rear yard, while practically escaping openings to the side yards. The axis was formed by a curved two-story high wall, which also served as a focus for many surprising perspectives at different levels of the house.
