Text description provided by the architects. The Park House addresses generic and specific aspects of residential construction. The site specifics are the adjacency of a city park on the North and a steep slope across the site. The addition must also integrate the existing historic house with the site.

As a generic approach, the addition exploits the local zoning regulations to create an attached second residential unit allowing the addition to share utilities. The addition defers to the historic house on the front and creates a courtyard on the rear.

A car port and garage / workshop are slid under the new residential unit as the site drops away. One moves under the carport and up to a shared deck as the building twists and bends overhead.
