For the façade upgrades, iterations using various materials were played with as well as some new design features for the "end caps" of this residence. The most important part of this study was to remain in character and harmonize with the context and the geometry and proportions of the original structure.
The containership office follows an "L" shape. the analogy of a periscope was used to imagine the narrow 8X40- foot upper containership have a backdrop view towards the Neuse river and the top of the trees. Leisure spaces are proposed for employees to have informal work spots.
