The shell wall is a research of rigorously moderated transparency, each acoustic and visible, with minimal home windows set on the module of the cement panels.
Envisioned as an area between the buildings, like an exterior plaza, the entry quantity organizes the movement by means of the house. The expertise of this “outside area” is enhanced and strengthened by constructing parts that tackle the area with uncooked finishes typical of constructing exteriors. Tough cement plaster, metallic siding, stained concrete flooring, and galvanized stairs all present a seamless transition from the streetside entry by means of to the view aspect of the house and a two-story window wall opening to the backyard. Dealing with south, this window wall shines daylight into the encompassing areas and dramatically opens views to the San Francisco Bay”.
