Urban prairie residence was designed for a residual site located adjacent to a nature preserve in the middle of Omaha. The entry to the site crosses a small creek and tree line creating the first zone of removal from the urban context. The living “tube” of space is positioned to capitalize on the view directly into the preserve and its lake. The slope of the site allows for the entry level to continue out into the living area ending in a cantilevered space with a high level of privacy. The garage and bedrooms, positioned perpendicular to the living areas, further this disconnection of the interior space to the city located behind.
