Simon Storey, recently labeled one of Wallpaper Magazines emerging Architects of 2014, found two side by side lots in the hills of Mount Washington and designed and built two modern single family homes, that are strikingly distinct from the rest of the quiet neighborhood. A mirror of one another each with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a 2 car garage, 331 N Crane features a slightly larger lot at 2,267 square feet and 1,220 square feet of interior space, while 327 N Crane is on a slightly smaller lot (1,999 square feet,)and features just 120 square feet less interior space.

The two, low boxy structures are wrapped in a vertical wood siding and surrounded by an angled white picket fence. The poured concrete driveway and tucked garage door design leaves additional room for off street parking.

In both homes the living spaces are located on the upper level. The front door opens to a light, bright and airy living room, dining and kitchen areas. White oak floors flow throughout the home. Modern bay windows provide natural light and an ideal place to perch while looking out over the hillside neighborhood.
