Renovations to the existing tudor bungalow provide a family home that takes advantage of the site constraints. The original bungalow plan provided limited access to the garden where a large tree and dilapidated pool were the only notable site features.
Design concepts create two distinct areas within the residence. The original portion of the house is largely retained with internal renovations and new services. A new hallway opens to a view of the garden and links the addition to the north. The new addition links the living areas to the shade tree and has an open, daylit character that contrasts with the original residence.
Aesthetic and landscape treatments are informal in character with references to the angular forms of the tudor gables.
