Section House

Architecture Design Project

The Challenge

In this project, I was assigned a section drawing and asked to extrapolate that drawing into a three-dimensional house.

The Solution

When examining the section drawing, I noticed that there were many square elements that looked as though they could be pushing through each other and interlocking. Based on this observation, I designed a house utilizing three U-shaped elements that interlock with each other (the white parts of the model). Intermediate spaces are created through wood and glass. The main entrance is located at the first level and stairs to the second level are located in a central core of the house. The roof is accessible in my design.
