    Scales of Time

    Home is about the experience of time. - This house explores the scale of a lifetime, a season, and a day. Each of the solid brick walls marks time and sets up a framework for which the house can grow. The central hearth, tucked into the hillside, is the first stage of growth for the start of the family. The goal was to allow a certain level of freedom for the spaces to grow into. This is also why brick was chosen as a building material. Intersecting white brick walls embody the seasons of the year and times of day, acting as a surface on which daylight is reflected and shadows are cast.
