Gunning House

17Sited on a back lot, the house is entered off an alley. The garage door is made of translucent polycarbonate. The steel cladding is extremely durable, low maintenance, and resistant to salt air. The skylight over the stair opens automatically to vent the interior. The main living spaces—perched on the third floor, just above neighboring rooftops—are open to light and views without sacrificing privacy. In the spirit of sustainability, the owners furnished the interior with used, mid-century Modern pieces, purchased on eBay. Nebolon playfully clad the fireplace and a column in tiny, multicolor tiles. A social gathering zone at parties, the stairway doubles as a cooling chimney. Thermostatic controls open and close the skylight above it, as needed. The large window alongside the stair is made of translucent polycarbonate.
