Architect Konieczny lifted the existing ground and wrapped it around the roof and exterior rooftop staircase, essentially making all floors “ground” level.
The expansive open-air living room on the first floor is framed with a curving wall of windows. The glass wall works as an outdoor atrium looking out on an exposed
sod-covered staircase and allows the room to be bathed in natural light.
Though the three-bedroom house is two stories, both floors offer “front” lawns on which to hang out, all accessible through sliding glass doors.
