This project was a response to the developer’s goal to develop two single-family homes on one typical single-family lot by making use of the jurisdiction’s small lot ordinance, which allowed for a lot split. The geometry of the site presented a unique challenge/opportunity for an alley-facing unit, which needed its own identity without having street frontage.
For such a small lot, there is an abundance of private outdoor space, including a patio off the kitchen, a carport that doubles as entertaining space off the dining area, and a screened deck on the second floor off the master bedroom.
