A summer seasonal dwelling was created to fit on a 24'x24' lot. The model contains spaces for cooking, sleeping, bathing, and lounging. The dwelling was designed with the restrictions of having at least 3 habitable levels connected by verticle passages, and at least 3 apertures that are oriented relative to natural light.
Massing sketch models were made out of wax and cardboard in order to decide on the configuration of the cubes.
The final model contains scale figures and furniture and two sides can be opened. Surfaces were treated, covered, and painted.
