Caplin Residence

An introverted house for a sculptor and a writer, the Caplin Residence is designed around an atrium that upsets the regularity of the house and inflects the adjacent rooms.

The image of an atrium under a hull was articulated to engage a wide range of personal, contextual and natural associations, starting from the client’s memory of her childhood on a boat.
The two private studios are at opposite ends of the ground floor. From the atrium, double stairs lead to a study and a guest room in the rear and master bed and bathroom in the front.
