Playing with Light and Shadow: Engineering a house with a dynamic interior

DCI Engineers provided structural design services on this two-story residence with a basement level and expansive rooftop gardens.  The house was designed to intentionally maximize the interaction of light and shadows in order to define a very dynamic interior that creates unique and contrasting experiences.

Project Highlights

  • The two-story, 12,000-sf concrete structure contains a basement and garage level.
  • The second floor consists of 3,500-sf spread over three wings with walkways and roof gardens connecting the areas.
