Kit of Parts: The site plan is a layering of various indoor-outdoor spaces as a kit of parts radiating from the focal point of the courtyard within the elliptical main pool. The toy box acts as the epicenter, surrounded by a buffer zone of green wayside picnic and shade areas for the guests. Connecting the unit blocks are stair towers that provide both a joint between the unit blocks and a breezeway from the periphery parking through the courtyard.
