Uniquely situated in a pastoral environment in The Bronx, New York, the RDA House is a ground-up residence designed for efficiency and comfort.

The four-floor structure maximizes the buildable potential of the lot, while offering an extremely strategic layout. The public space occupies the entirety of the first floor, with one accessible bedroom, while the upper floor is comprised of six additional bedrooms.

The residence’s square windows reflect its interior, and grant design flexibility and differentiation to the sizeable structure. In several locations, the brick fa├žade becomes porous, allowing light to filter into the inside while maintaining a degree of privacy. Complete with a full attic and cellar, the home accommodates additional recreation and storage space, optimizing for both comfort and utility.
