Design, Bitches ADU is a new guest house/studio as re-envisioned for the contemporary backyard. The compact footprint contains everything needed for a home and office, opening up the lot to make the most of limited space through a series of indoor & outdoor rooms built to welcome inhabitants of all ages. The floor is slightly raised and surrounded by a boardwalk inspired by the Japanese engawa, a type of veranda which creates a feeling of separation and a psychological threshold through a simple material and level change.The straightforward design can be customized to meet an individual client or family’s needs with an optional outdoor dining/lounge area patio cover that can be designated a carport if additional parking is required. The bedroom can one left open for a loft feel or enclosed as a separate room, and an exterior door to the bathroom can be added for access to a pool/spa, or use by guests. The space is equipped with an efficient heat pump for heating & cooling as well as a tankless water heater. Recycled tile and LED lighting are included in the design, and the ADU is solar photovoltaic panel ready. Rain barrels are used to store water for landscaping re-use.
