Compact affordable housing design 

The Slice House is a comfortable family home for a small lot of 25 ft x 100 ft with a footprint of 16 ft x50 ft. The total enclosed heated area is 1400 sq ft. In addition, there is a covered carport wedged directly under the house with a convenient stair to the entry foyer. A covered deck on the south side extends the great room, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor living area.

The house is an extruded box from which slices were cut to reduce the square footage and create an intelligent and beautiful house. Cuts into the basic form reveal its shape and functions. A slice in the front of the house places the carport on an incline and conceals the parked car from the street. A large opposing slice on the south side removes a volume to create a covered sun deck. A number of other slices give form to the entry, dining room, and several windows.

The sum of the slices is a set of spaces simple in their design and materials yet spatially intriguing. Each window was carefully placed to maximize the home’s connection to nature and light.
