From the architect. This project redefines the internal organization and exterior form of an existing 1960’s single story ranch house. The project for a new master bedroom suite and a guest room leverages the limited scope of work by using the overall new for the give the entire house a new identity. The new massing is positioned forward in relationship to the existing approach seeming to rise upward and the hillside falls, the new master bedroom provides this new front with a formal face, yet does not yet imply entry. As you move further into the site the appearance of a courtyard caught between the existing form and the new massing reveals the new entry.

Additionally the exterior of the new massing is articulated as a draped shin hung loosely over the new forms. The skin is then extended to wrap portions of the existing massing as well giving the house a completely new appearance. This looseness of fit between shin and mass defines a number of unexpected spaces caught between surface and mass.
