2002 Best Room Addition Over $100,000

The objective was to replace a cramped powder bath with a full bath that maximizes natural light and views. This was achieved by constructing a dormer from what had been crawl space storage. The project also tied into the enclosure of an existing balcony to achieve a bonus room. The delighting scheme incorporates a bank of double hung windows that look out into the treetops. Two skylights supply overhead light and a raised oval window frames the view of a neighboring park and lagoon. The solution for exterior appearance and continuity was based on the notion that the dormer needed to appear light, contrasting with the visually heavier brick base. This was achieved by pulling the dormer walls back from the perimeter of the base. In addition, the unique slope to the existing roofline was mimicked in the dormer’s form, both outside and in.
