double gables

two-gables_01

This house plays a game of symmetry, where the magnificent double gable of Lutyens’ Homewood is played on every facade, but punches out by one module on the east and west facades.  The stair is set off-center, with a tall square atrium (Craig Ellwood of two posts back), and an asymmetrical collage of symmetrical rooms inside.  My first plan (above) had double columns throughout, the second plan (below) favors the single centered column.
