Abstract
The thoughtful expression of building components

provides a conceptual framework through which we

can come to an understanding of architecture.

Beyond the appreciation of individual elements

involved in an assembly, numerous opportunities

emerge to form architectural conditions and places.

An envelope that oscillates between transparency and

opaqueness introduces a modern conception of boundary.

The control of natural light can also contribute to a

compact space without compromising the desired

level of privacy that is expected from a house.
