Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Ocean View Farmhouse presented an opportunity to continue exploring ideas about the expressive capacity of construction, the experience of enclosure, and their relationship with both the landscape and interior space. In addition to climatic and other functional needs for shelter, the essence of human enclosure is to offer some respite from the infinitely immense space of the world. Thresholds as places of transition and mediation between the landscape and the habitable areas of the house attempt to establish distinct places with their own particular qualities.
