New American Home on the Range
The New American Home on the Range
The American Institute of Architects held a design Competition
Lot size 90 feet X 150 feet
Home Size 2500 Square feet.
We thought the lot size was too big and out of balance with the home size, creating sprawl.
We proposed splitting the lot into two lots and to place two homes on each lot.
Four homes vs. one on the same amount of land
The Judges made no response & awarded us nothing.
We were saying that no home design that followed the rules above could be note-worthy.
We looked beyond the conventional which is the necessary foundation for good design.
