This project aims to design a dwelling for an astronomer and a geologist by exploring the concept of "over and under". With one inhabitant looking up towards the sky and the other looking down at the ground, this design examines how two opposing forces can inhabit and divide the same space. Centered by a shared courtyard, the circulation of work, rest, and play spaces radiate outward in opposite directions, creating mirrored spaces that adapt to the needs of the inhabitant.
