Martin Residence
Renovations and Additions

The original home was well-proportioned and simple in it’s detailing, but located on a site with curved street, no room in the rear for expansion, yet enough room on one side for the desired master suite expansion. As the Martin Residence and the adjacent homes form an established curved setback, reflecting the form of the historic street, the architect angled the addition to align with this curving edge, complimenting the original home while reducing the scale appropriate with a bedroom wing. The flat-roofed one story connector space functions to join and transition existing public areas with private bedroom area, allows the upper side bedroom windows to remain unobstructed, and forms a threshold from which both the front and rear yards are accessed. An integrated garden portal lowers the addition’s scale at the property’s edge.
