A second year project, the Sanders-Dudley House was designed to accommodate a large family, which included 6 children. Being a home of such a different scale changed the design aesthetic slightly from previous Rural Studio projects. Focus on replication of details and affordability of materials drove much of the construction decisions. Rammed earth, was selected as the main structural system for the bearing walls as it was cheap, local, and did not require a finish; in addition to being highly insulative and fire resistant. A well articulated roof form and strategic operable windows allowed the large home to be operated passively in the summer and heated primarily with a fireplace in the winter. Much of the public shared family space is centered in the home and allows for ventilation to cross the entire house. Private spaces such as bedrooms and bathrooms are pushed to the ends and loft space of the home, to lend some intimate territories for such a large household. The entire form is broken down on the exterior with several material changes that allow for the scale of the house to be visually reduced.
