A simple in-fill set of row houses with adjoining rear yards allowed us to concentrate on the purity of the row as a thin slit of space with two faces, front and back, and a contemporary desire for ample light and air. Some significant features of the house include an occupiable intensive green roof and a building envelope & HVAC system designed to be 50% more efficient than required by code.
