The ground level plan shows the development of the east edge of the project as an active, mediating edge between the garage space and the outdoor living space of the pool.  The edge becomes a thickened, occupiable one that is transparent yet provides multiple, functional aspects for the spaces it defines.  The series of vertical CMU fins at the east edge complete a diagram of a shell system that defines  generally the spatial organization of the structure. The series of fins define a penetrable edge that suggests to the user many options for use such as storage, or niches for placing tables and chairs.
