Bringing in daylight ... with a hall.
Narrow, daylighted halls shape and organize the two houses pictured on these three pages. In both two-story spaces, bright, indirect light comes from on high--through clerestory windows in one, skylights in the other--spilling into adjacent rooms. The halls' dramatic upper portions take their shapes from the houses' angled and peaked roof forms. The halls also give a greater sense of spaciousness to the public and private rooms that open to them on lower and upper floors. At night, lights high over the hallways add drama to the tall spaces.
