Casa Lobo 

Casa Lobo is a collaboration between CONTENT and the owner to create an affordable, well designed solution using the economy of metal building components. Situated in Houston's energized East End, the single level house is lifted off the site to accommodate the owner's hobby as a mechanic below while gaining privacy for living above. The depth of the steel frame allowed for playful articulation of the windows while the CMU stair tower pulls air from the garage and serves to exhaust it through a stack effect.
