For the design of my facade I focused on the potential views along James street rather than the frontal view. This allows the residents to experience more of the city as they lounge within the facade. The facade masks interior and exterior views by the alternate shifting of columns, this shifting also allows for the filtering of light through the house, including the basement. This allows the basement to be more enjoyable and used as a living space. The facade includes several glazing elements such as the skylightwhich allows light into the stoop as well as other floors. The operable windows on the front facade and the frosted glass panels on the side of the building to make the transition from the street into the residence more pleasing.
