Square House

The Square House is a multi-use domestic space. The house has no front door but four primary openings and series of either secondary/thinner apertures or large glass expanses on each face of the square. The uses and activities in the house are sleeping (a small bedroom with water closet), a bathing room (with in floor hot tub similar to those found in a Japanese Onsen, a Hinoke (Japanese cedar) bath tub, steam shower and rinse off area), a kitchenette, a sunken living area with large fire place and a work space. The apertures open onto a series of outdoor spaces such as a moss garden, a wood deck with adjacent sculpture garden, a sloped wooded space and a bermed lawn. The roof is also activated as a viewing platform and elevated raised bed vegetable and flower garden.
