This twin townhouse project is set back from the street by means of an exterior deck above the garage, The deck, an extension of the living room, buffers the living space from the busy street. The third floor balcony and study cantilever over the deck and provide shade for the large living room windows. The interior spaces are organized around a split-entry; that is, the public entrance off the street is into a space that is in between the first and second floor, bypassing the bedrooms on the first floor. The second floor is completely open with kitchen, dining, and living rooms together. The study on the third floor overlooks the living room below. Complementary colors were used for the façade composition. Featured in Texas Architect May 2001. 2004 Merit Award AIA Houston.
