Sitting directly across the street from 1136 Fort View, this home reinterprets the row house plan type that comprises the neighborhood. Owing to its limited views rather than looking outward, this home chooses to be inwardly focused. Mediating between earth and sky, the upper floors of explicit spaces are pierced by four light wells illuminating the open living level below. The vertical and horizontal entry progression extends the gradient between the publicness of the street and the privacy within.
