Using building blocks of the typical American tract house, we asked not only what types of spaces they could contain, but what types of spaces they could create – a change not so much in architectural configuration, but in lifestyle.

Everybody should have a fruit tree – sweet fragrance, an idea of abundance, and a small token of a good life in one package. Houses should be about quiet, protected places – places that can be marked by the track of the sun and dimensioned with shadow. Houses need to breathe – in this day and this climate, a house needs to embrace the out and make it part of the in.
