Un.box studio was commissioned to design this secondary guest home/ office to reference the primary residence originally designed a decade prior. Due to local regulations that would limit our size, heights, number of stories, parking, form, and location un.box had to kick into high gear to get creative to maximize its potential. We took advantage of the maximum allowable ceiling height to create a double height space with a mezzanine loft overlooking everything. A two-story window system was strategically placed on the south wall to allow indirect sunlight to pervade the entire space during all hours of the day. The lofted structure also doubles as a carport.
