Project Description

Hillcrest Residence

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.
