The design opens the street level and southern facades with glass to bring in natural light and encloses the rest for privacy from the neighbors. A wraparound porch with integrated screening addresses the vernacular of the historic neighborhood, calibrated to the altitude and azimuth of the sun throughout New York’s changing seasons. On the roof, carved out space allows for a large roof deck with garden beds and ample solar panels.
