Twenty six hundred square feet were added to a 1970s Deck House distinguished by the use of natural materials, a refined post and beam system, and prefabricated proprietary components. By city ordinance, fifty percent of the original roof, foundation, and interior walls had to be left in tact. Two towers, one for entry and one for dining, were designed to connect new additions to the old house. The dining tower, kitchen, living room, and family room are northwest of the entry tower extending the main part of the original house toward protected wetlands on the heavily wooded and sloping site. A two story addition with an upper level master bedroom and an exercise room sits to the southeast of the entry tower. Two children’s bedrooms are on the entry level. On the lower level, interior walls, part of the original footprint, were left undisturbed although the level itself was extensively renovated. Bands of operable windows just below roof eaves and 2x8 fascia boards placed over 4x8 panels run around the house to express the horizontality of the original house on the exterior.
