Skew proposes a new typology for accesory dwelling built around three principle criteria: ecological responsiveness, distinctive character and robust adaptability. The hub and spoke organization centralizes work and activity while extending space for dining, sleep and respite into the surrounding landscape. These lightly cantilevered spaces permit the absolute minimum of impact on the ground and an inherent adabtability to local topography. The attenuated massing of Skew nestles among the trees and orients each interior toward a desired view while glancing away from those of adjacent residents, promoting seclusion while increasing density.
