This project aimed to transform a dark attached garage into a light-filled, fully functional, ADU. There were many constraints on this project the greatest of which was the extremely limited size. Through a focus on natural and exposed structural materials, the design strove to make use of all possibly available space. The stair had to be a very transparent element in order to maximize southern light in the lower floor.
