Here we have four examples of what this house might look like in elevation. The one to the left is two level...the other three one level. Because the footprint is square...the logical roof is pyramid in shape but also included is a "flat" roof with parapets and a double shed roof with clearstory.

In the plan view you will see that one of the side bays can contain a staircase leading up to the second level...which could be a duplicate of the first level...or maybe a huge open studio...with four indented patios on the four cardinal directions...

As the square footprint is not ideal for passive solar...the double shed with clearstory could be helpfull in heating and ventilating the north side...or the upper level of a two story...particularly with an open staircase...allowing air circulation between the two levels.
