This single-family home, Situated on a narrow lot, between two apartment buildings on a semi-busy street, this family home judiciously placed windows for light, air, and privacy. The lot is graded to lower the main living level below the street level, allowing for large glass in main living spaces while maintaining the confidentiality and mitigating traffic noise. A narrow lot doesn't allow for a large yard, so a large rooftop garden was created instead, taking into account views of the local hillside communities.
