“TableTop explores the concept of contextual contradiction. By allowing both the existing 1960?s suburban ranch typology and the new addition to live free of stylistic constraints, the project enjoys true contextual harmony. The rotated forms allowed for intimate terraces and the boxes house a lounge and a gym. These forms were oriented on the TableTop to allow for maximum views of the property, passive solar strategies and to allow for exterior spaces to be occupied. Those are now their favorite places in the home.”
