MOD HOUSE 1
RESIDENTIAL | SINGLE FAMILY | DES MOINES, IA
MOD HOUSE 1 presents a modern solution to single family housing in a diverse neighborhood of Des Moines. The overall massing relates to the formal character of the surrounding homes, creating correlation between old and new through scale and form. A front porch is introduced in a contemporary manner, with a steel framed and wood wrapped canopy. Simplicity in material selections - wood, steel, and concrete - provide a flexible and elegant palette to build upon. Windows along the north and east fill the lofted living space with plentiful light.
