I have started a new project that I am calling the Desert Trench House. I have yet to illustrate a project on this website that is located in an arid environment and am excited to get going on this. The structure sits mostly recessed underground with large shade overhangs projecting above . Unlike the Philly Bridge Project, the context of the Trench House is minimal meaning less time will be spent illustrating surrounding buildings and more time refining lighting and atmosphere. For now, here are some quick vignettes of the design in its current state.


Above, some form studies. The final design shown as #12.
