Sunken House, by Adjaye Associates, is a three-story modern prefab home, in which the lowest floor of the house is sunken into the ground. With Sunken House being visually and physically separated from its neighbors, I decided to draw attention to the fact that this house is not as secluded as it seems.

My model demonstrates a symbolic take on the view out of the highest back window, which displays rows of houses surrounding Sunken House, as well as the backyards and trees within them. I produced a disappearing, one point perspective horizon line with my view, creating all components out of solid White Pine, and the trees from wood dowel.
