Understanding the Owner’s wishes and specific criteria, 2+ Architects took on the renovation and addition to this home situated in a traditional residential neighborhood originally built in the 1950s. The goal was to introduce a series of modern and contemporary spatial elements, while balancing the overall historic overtones of the existing home. Included in the addition are a master bedroom with a bathroom and walk-in-closet, a living space, and dining facilities. Also included is a covered terrace to integrate the existing backyard with the house. A challenge which came with this project was reconciling the height differential between the yard and the living room.
