1519 Harmon

The structure is orientated so that its windows face due north or south, thus respecting the privacy of neighbors whose windows face due east or west. The structure’s gabled form takes its cue from the front house it complements; the pitched roof helps mitigate the shadows cast onto the adjacent west neighbor. The building material choice reflects the character of the neighborhood. The limited palette of asphalt shingle roof, board-and-batten fiber cement siding, and metal windows acts to bridge the Edwardian style of the front and east neighbors and the contemporary style of the west and far east neighbors. The materials are durable and retain their character with minimum maintenance. The building footprint is modest compared to the other neighbors thus meeting the demand for a detached single-family home at the same time that it maintains the low-density of its zoning.
