National Winner

The homeowners are enthusiasts of residential modern architecture and wanted to update their 1960’s split-foyer with the addition of a two-car garage, a modern façade with handsome finishes, and a pleasing front entry to give their home presence. Located on a generous two-acre suburban lot, the site could easily accommodate a more substantial home.

Even a tract house can have architectural merit when remodeled with thoughtful design by skilled craftsmen. Scale and mass are important to design. The existing house had two blocks; a two-story bedroom wing on the right abutting a one story wing with living spaces.

The program required removing a small carport to build a new two-car garage, which became the third block of the building and created a stepped roof rhythm. The centerpiece of the new façade is the projecting front porch with its cub-form. The existing brick house acts as background for the more aggressive architecture of the porch. Contrast is as crucial to design as scale and mass, so stone, wood and stucco were all used to embellish the existing house.
