MISSION TOWNHOUSE, 2015

An urban home inspired by Latin American and Middle Eastern architecture. The courtyard is typical to hot climates. It provides greenery and cool air within the home, while the façade facing the street is heavy and defensive. Middle Eastern architects decorated facades in relief, by carving away rather than applying to the mass. I explored this approach in the main doorway and buttresses.
