Schwetz Burton Residence

On the Boards

Characterized by strong horizontal lines, planes, and openings, the Schwetz Burton Residence organizes program across three levels on its narrow site. Several brick site walls provide privacy as well-tailored landscaping forms a symbiotic relationship between the natural and man-made. Parking nests under the cantilever of the upper levels, which contain the main living spaces as well as their bedroom. A ribbon of glass wraps and dives around the front corner for an ideal place to look out over the streetscape. The carefully designed section integrates higher ceilings in the living space and master bedroom with clerestories and light wells. Topped off by a spacious roof deck, jacuzzi and planter.
