Abstract

Today, housing dominates the majority of land use due partially to its horizontally organized living spaces which results in relatively large building footprints. As an alternative to this default horizontality, a vertically-oriented single family house is studied. The house takes advantage of the verticality by offering unusual spatial overlaps with a set of choreographed views corresponding to level and visibility distance of the surrounding terrain.
