The Main Stay House (Lindell Residence) exists as a straightforward proposal, with paring down the components of a house to a minimal amount of planes and openings, on an urban infill lot. The scheme is anchored by a staircase which bifurcates the layout to provide a clear division between the common and private zones of the house. The staircase is clad in gray masonry both externally and internally, providing a clear reading of the massing from the all outside angles. The masonry also contrasts an otherwise muted interior atmosphere of smooth, desaturated surfaces.
