From the architect. An addition and renovation to this pseudo-colonial house utilizes modern forms and materials, improves circulation, allows for abundant natural light and includes complete living facilities on one level.

We believe that our efforts, in most projects, should result in a design that is appropriate to the property, to the users, to the existing amenities, to the neighborhood and especially to the times in which we live. In order to achieve such designs, we consider opportunities to take advantage of the Owner's goals, the site and its views and its features, light (natural and artificial), circulation (vertical and horizontal), energy efficiency (including passive solar) and other factors that we believe create dynamic, enjoyable, comfortable and responsible architecture.

Hi,

Just a few comments.

1) How come there is no mention of the builder, but the structural engineer is mentioned.? (I am a builder from London, and I think it is on the rude side to leave him/her out.)
2) As for the design, the new part is nice, just a pity that the rest of the house is not on par.

Nice job,
