With this collaboration the client wished to add a second floor to their ranch house. Besides their space requirements, they had two wishes they hoped we could accomplish. The first was to make to make the house more contemporary. Secondly, though we where doubling the size, they wanted the house to still fit into the neighborhood; the area they live in has several projects that have ignored the neighborhoods scale and proportions.
The program consisted of a new second floor containing two bedrooms with an adjoining shared bathroom, a laundry room, and a master suite. On the first floor we added a stairway while reworking the bedroom wing of the first floor to comfortably fit a powder room, a music room, a family room and home office and a front hall closet. We also reduced the size of the existing master bedroom to accommodate some of these changes. As part of the design we upgraded the front entrance to a contemporary design and developed a two story entry foyer to assist in bringing natural light into the interior of the house.
