A strangely chapped site tasked the design to produce a 3 bedroom, 3 garage single storey dwelling with ideal orientation of the bedrooms and main living areas. As the site sits on the end of a street the team wanted to use a mass wall to emphasise the entrance. The mass wall is on the Western façade and thus has a dual function of solar control. Combined with this the garage is also placed on the West side to produce a mass between the Western sun and the living areas
