The part of S House divides the long thin lot into two gardens, challenging the conventional diagram of the front and back yard of the typical suburban house. The house becomes the active space between the gardens, and offers the occupants multiple views and sectional level changes as they move through the site.
S House differs from the standard villa with a compact form and central circulation, with the elongated plan allowing for an extensive surface connection with the landscape.
Stained cedar clads the exterior of the house, with a corrugated iron roof forming a continuous series of hips and valleys. The internal palette is black and white with a black oxide concrete floor and built in furniture.
