The challenges were solved through the attachment of shade structures, reopening pre-existing hit and miss brick fenestrations and adding operable skylights. The northern fixed awning was devised through algorithmic design processes to balance connection with the sky and solar shading with the triangular motif following the 45deg geometry of the original building.

This rigid composition is counterpointed by the rich and eclectic art pieces and furniture arranged throughout the home.
