This video is part 2 in a three part series describing the origins of the dogtrot house and describing the design process of a series of modern dogtrot house designs.
Part 2 describes the design thinking behind the layout of the Longhouse dogtrot floor plan, how I use structural grids to organize the home and the impacts of those design decisions on the architecture. Part 3 will discuss the selection of materials.
