We are excited to share one of our recently completed projects, featured in Architectural Digest! Here are some of the hidden details our office executed to achieve this beautiful product.
The goal for the project was to upgrade a 1920’s Tudor home for a modern family, and add on extra square footage for livable spaces and a new master suite. We were able to reconfigure the layout of the existing house to accommodate the living spaces that open out the back patio and yard, and use the addition as an architectural element that hosts the master suite. We designed a modern appendage that married with the form of the original traditional Tudor structure, while accentuating the hierarchy of the new master suite space. In order to fit the pool on site, our solution was to locate it against the new addition, giving it the ability to visually function as a water feature, as viewed from the master bedroom. To pull of the design, there were a couple crucial details we kept our eye on.
First, in order to keep the form of the addition pure, we had to remove used built-in gutters to collect the water from the new roof.
We also allowed for a deepened threshold, so it could be used as a seating ledge from inside the house.
