CONCEPT STATEMENT

The Sonata House is a modern, environmentally friendly designed residential home that functionally illuminates the actions of work, rest and play. The spaces will be composed in a comfortable and functional way appropriate for 2-3 people. The building will expose the rooms to as much light as possible and windows and viewpoints will be emphasized within the design. The element of balance should also be communicated with the two cantilevering building parts. The living experience should be considered unique with the large windows, tall ceilings, and slanted walls. Hierarchy will be explored with the different heights of the various roofs in the design. This house will be an isolated weekend getaway to the middle of the woods. The design will be modern, but will be appropriate with its surroundings. The palette is soft and muted as to communicate the feelings of relaxation and meditation.
