This house is for my mother. It is made of common parts accumulated in excessive quantities or arranged unconventionally. The roof has too many gables. The interior is mostly doors. The steps in the back yard are the full width of the lot. The siding is aligned with the pitched roof rather than the walls and striped in alternating shades of yellow.
The envelope is made of repeating blocks with identical doors and gables. The blocks are shifted a quarter module from top to bottom, front to back, and side to side, which creates a number of misalignments and alignments at the interior. No two sets of doors line up across either level of the house, but the doors at the bottom and top of the stair do. The main level is a single open room surrounded by 56 doors, which lead outside and to storage areas contained within thick perimeter walls. Rooms on the upper level have vaulted ceilings within 1 1/2 or 2 roof gables.
