scandia way, mt. washington

This multi-level home twists its way up mt. washington’s west-facing slopes in a tiered, stacking formation that allows for areas of open-air patios and atriums, along with wide-open views toward the surrounding greenery of the neighborhood. Between the different “folds” of the house lie the potential forms for the new addition. (the colored areas above show different shapes and components of the existing house we’ve used to find the new form for the addition).

The clients and their family intend to stay in place — along with their adult children — and therefore wish to add more square feet to the property. Zoning regulations compound on this particular site, and the only place to add on is upwards — in one more final stack above the back of the house. The addition will contain 2 new bedrooms, 1 bath, and 1 recreation area with outdoor porch. Other upgrades include a folding wall system (Nana wall) and new exterior finishes.
