The concluding project of first semester architecture design studio, the Cube House project centers about the careful creation of spaces using a limited palette of elements. This solution uses the service core as a pivot about which to rotate the axis of the project away from the road entrance to divide it experientially from the house, garden, and lecture areas.

Final model, from the direction of the lake. The rotated plan allows the beach area to frame a large portion of the lake.
