Contemporary Addition

This project is an addition to a contemporary shingled home. The design allows for an additional bedroom and bathroom to be added to the second floor and new decks to be constructed. The design of the addition is maintains the same contemporary appearance of the existing home. The roofline is held below the existing roof allowing a continuous row of transom windows to bring light into to the upstairs sitting area. The transom windows, when open, also create a chimney effect for natural ventilation letting the hot air rise and escape out through the windows. This home also utilizes solar panels for bringing electricity to the residence. The combination of “green” elements and the contemporary appearance of the home made this an interesting project.
