Carroll Gardens Rowhouse
The shade pattern is abstracted from photographs of a neighbor's fig tree. We traced the densest areas of fig shadows on fig leaves in the photographs and composed them such that both hole and material have equal figural reading. The pattern repeats every second panel, and shifts down with each repeat from front to back. Because the pattern is more open at the top, the fence panels are more closed and private at the seating area and more open and transparent at the back.
