A late division of the property permitted the present proprietors to buy the building with the expectation of transforming it into a two-room home. Working inside of the current eight-foot basic lattice, Hammer Architects made another lounge, lounge area, kitchen, two rooms, and bathrooms inside the current shell.

The outcome is a minimal 1,700 square foot living arrangement. To keep the house from feeling compelled, Hammer Architects built up an inside arrangement with long observable pathways through the extensive dividers of glass in the primary living spaces. These perspectives open to the repaired 1950s pool, a huge yard and broad finishing to make a vaporous and far reaching home.
