Contextual Fit

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND BUILD AN "ADDITION TO AN EXISTING DIRECTION; THIS WILL REQUIRE, " FIRSTLY THAT THE EXISTING STRUCTURE OF THE ARCHETYPAL MODEL BE SUPPOSED AND UNDERSTOOD SO THAT, THROUGH A SERIES OF PREDETERMINED DEVIATIONS AND ARRANGEMENTS, THE ORIGINAL DESIGN CONCEPT CAN BE CLARIFIED, SUPPORTED, AND CONSTRUCTED UPON, RATHER THAN RUINED."

Narrative

smith image 1.png

Smith’s House located in Connecticut, which overlooks the shore of the Long Island Sound at Darien. Sgt Dwyer is an enthusiastic plane individual who has a private license. He has a son and daughter. They have numerous requests for the Smith house, which he suggests a state of art wing with plane features and must have a gaming lounge for my son and daughter. Also, a multi-floor fully equipped Gym. Spacious master bedroom and bath. I want my living area to be the most crucial focal point, then the master bedroom. The function of the home should show public and private space, which would flow to accommodate when friends and family are there. It would also show individual and group functions, especially the living area to the backyard. "Love outdoor space to relax and grill." Also, a two-car garage to tie in the spaces.

Contextual Analysis

Analysis Diagram

All through Richard Meier's design on the Smith House, there are critical systems and patterns noticed. Meier does this to create a classifying manner through his architectural design method of the Smith House. For example, public and private areas are open and closed, circulation, function, structure, hierarchy, mass, void, additive, and subtractive.
