House With a Sloping Wall

In their Type B and Type F apartments, Moisei Ginzburg and the Stroykom team manipulated ceiling heights to divert volume from sleeping areas to the living area where it could be better appreciated during waking hours. 

Inspired by Hiroyuki Asai's long-forgotten 1971 Mochizuki House, this project attempts the same by manipulating the inclination of the wall separating day and night areas. The wall is inclined 45° to return exactly half the bedroom volume to the living area. 

Useable volume is preferable to volume for volume's sake. Bleachers House is a variant that allows a degree of functionality for the volume returned.
