Light, bright, clean, and uncomplicated townhouse.

LIGHT POURS IN through two-story windows on the west--broken up in summer by the foliage of bigleaf maple, in winter by backlit sculptural branches.

Entry, living and dining rooms, and kitchen of this three-level house open to one another, sharing space and taking in the view. The living room soars to the roof. A master suite looks out over this are and through the tall windows. For privacy, a bedroom-study and laundry-workroom are tucked away at basement level.

"The stacking of living spaces, the segregation of private spaces, and the big trees on the lot make this 2,000-square-foot house a place where a family of four can live in the middle of the city and feel neither crowded nor urban," said juror Hull.

The townhouse is one of three in a row. Jones described them as "carefully thought out and beautifully detailed, showing far more care than most speculative buildings ever get."
