porches, squares, and circles

This project stems from a building I passed by every so often living in New Haven, CT.  Two or three Victorian and Colonial homes had been repurposed as a school, with one long porch wrapping all of the various buildings into one.  My proposal here places two opposite forms – one square, the other circular – against one another, united by a shared central staircase and a wrap-around porch, as one house with two identities.  The bottom elevation shows a variation, with a larger second floor and attic, but the basic idea is lost. . .
