The juxtaposition between old and new, historic and modern was the inspiration for this project. The 1500sf addition responds to the intent of the old 1916 Georgian-Revival house and builds upon its existing narrative of family, heritage, fine taste, and social grace. Simultaneously, it introduces an entirely new narrative that tells the story of a more open, relaxed lifestyle with 21st century amenities and attention to energy efficiency. Both narratives are articulated through materiality (brick and steel), form (a historic foursquare box and a simple, modern, rectilinear appendage), and spatial relationships created through floorplan and section.
