NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT. 1999-2000. The house fronts the street with the tall, west end, then slides down the steep bank while swerving and expanding outwards in plan, to open up towards the common park land at mid-block. The expansive stair leads out of the living room to complete this gesture.
There is a kitchen, dining, living room, guest bedroom and bath on the first floor; a study, two bedrooms, and a bath on the second floor. The 'master' bedroom slips out of the roof contained in a very elongated 'dust-pan' dormer to catch a distant glimpse of New Haven's East Rock. The huge window on the west wall of the study scoops west light into the open crack of space on the south side of the interior down the open stair and into the living room below. The house is 1900 sq. ft. with an additional 1000 sq. ft. unfinished basement opening out at grade.
