We replaced a screened porch on this house with a large family room. Its ceiling is ten feet high. Windows wrap the room, letting light in from all sides.
A new walk-out basement below provides room for the owner’s bee keeping equipment.
The addition is carefully detailed to complement the existing house, but not to blend in invisibly. The goal was for the addition to feel as if it was always part of the house, but a special part. The new volume is like a jewelry box set alongside the original house.
