Marc. Interesting question….it is purely coincidental. The size of the "pier" at bottom right is the result of structural requirements transferring wind loads from the upper level to the ground. The alignment of the upper level windows to the edge of the pier: part structural, part compositional. The void at the covered patio area is the result of striving for as small of a footprint as possible. The decision to keep the pier the same color as the upper level body results in a "figure-ground" reading of a backwards "F".
