    The project explores possible conditions of cohabitation through the design of domestic prosthetics for the single-family detached house. Three subtle appendages—the Compost Chimney, the Extended Eave, and the Habitat Dormer— each re-imagine the design of conventional building components. The prosthetics augment the boundary between human and animal domains and invite animals to  adapt to the suburban biome, inhabiting […]
