The Other House belongs to the world of the alley. This ADU emulates its neighboring garages, but is a small universe of architecture, a high fence forms its boundary, an oversized roof sits on top of it. The rectangular house is positioned to create four distinct outdoor spaces, the entrance porch, the private patio, the living room sun and the event exterior. The interiors articulate the oversized roof, demarcated by a maple datum that creates a sense of order and often acts as a storage system. The Other House proposes a specific way of life: private, outside, quiet, physical. Photos by James Florio.
