2017--Living Space AdditionCreate a living space that takes advantage of the existing space at the back of the house under the oak trees.The solution is a space that is square in plan and set between two 15' high walls with a ceiling height varying between about 12'6" to 14'6". From the street edge, the new structure will peak up above the existing house to hint of something new, a step away from the ordinary.
The south wall is a pair of steel framed glass panels that pivot open to connect the inside with the outside when the weather is inviting in the fall & spring.
The north wall is created within a steel grid allowing glass at its edges for light and ventilation while suspending wood framed boxes that allow either open or closed storage at the inside.
