This existing 2-story 1,200 square-foot Tudor style home was in need of an interior upgrade and overall extension. The communal areas were crowded, the 3 bedrooms were small and the garage could not house a typical vehicle - the family needed more space. There was also a desire to respect the existing style of the home and the neighborhood, so minimal impact to the facade was a main priority.
The solution to the additions became a product of proportion and what the passer-by may see from the street. We enlarged the garage with the same Tudor style design to the existing facade. The rear single-story addition was designed to feel deliberately unlike the existing home with a flat roof, dark wood siding, and a wall of windows.
In the end, the crowded home became an open and more usable sun-lit home that opens to the rear yard.
