TROS/KEEFE HOUSE CALGARY 2000-2007 ANDREW KING AK A
the conceptual framework for the project is defined by four positions: house as lens, house as pattern, house as container, house as material. the project is defined by two masses; one large. and open, the other more discrete. one simple two story box/space that engagesthe garden and sun to the south and channels the west view with its second story balcony. it is rough void that gets animated by discrete programmatic elements; oversize entry door and frame, an object stair and landing, a second floor bridge piercing the space as it engages the balcony, the west wall of cabinetry with its fireplace. these highly crafted elements are in tension with the simple and rough envelope.
