Bedroom Addition

The client had a 1970s contemporary house and wanted to add a 3rd floor Bedroom for one of his daughters.

We kept the same shed roof vernacular and designed a new bedroom over an existing one, creating an open, high ceiling space. With the additional height on one side, we were able to have a sleeping loft which maximized the floor space. The window at the top of the new stair invites one up to explore the new space.

New Two Car Garage With Guest Suite Above

My client is a noted interior designer. The project required replacing the existing garage with a new  two story garage with a family room in the rear and guest suite above.

We also designed a matching style with the existing cottage style of the main house and uses a cupola, first floor stone veneer and arched garage doors to give it a “Carriage house” look.

 

The family room features a stone fireplace with built-in TV.  The house was featured on the cover of a local home magazine.

The house is situated in the Saugatuck Shores area of Westport and has spectacular views of Long Island Sound. We designed a 2-story addition to the house that would capitalize on the view and give them the additional space they needed.

The addition includes a home office on the lower level and a large living room with vaulted ceilings on the upper level. Both floor open to a generous deck overlooking the water with great views of Long Island in the distance.

Screened Porch Retreat

My client had a dilapidated shed in the woods behind her house and wanted to replace it with a screened porch. She wanted a simple room, surrounded by nature where she could go to read, relax and have conversations. I created a gabled structure, with screens all around and exposed heavy timber collar ties. 

She is very happy with it!
