This Partner’s house has served as a forum for ideas about small houses. It relies on the historic lessons of proportion for its continuity, but there are some twists. For example, it has a very clear front, but no clear back; if the boundaries of the house are not orthogonal, the ability to perceive the smallness of the structure is limited. Thoughtful features include daylighting in every room, excellent insulation, a gracious porch and generous closets. A recycled ceiling of beaded wainscotting graces the circular porch.
