The homeowners desired a solution to their rather awkward daily entry, which landed them directly into their study. They also wanted a family gathering space to enjoy their grandchildren and to reconnect to their back yard, and to replace their small car shed with an attached two-car garage. Affectionately dubbed “The Addition That Wasn’t”, the design solution strove to be a respectful, sensitive and scale appropriate addition. The existing car shed provided the core design theme of a street-facing gable with the new forms to fall in line behind. The original home’s exterior materials were used to establish a two tier hierarchy and matching masonry was featured on the primary entry. The new two-car garage, family room and entry were added transparently without taking away from the original house, almost disguised behind the new repeated form of the original garage shed.
