The bulk of my practice consists of additions to older homes. My basic approach to designing an addition
is to use the new construction to enhance the existing. Besides adding square footage an addition can act
as a catalyst to refocus the activities of a household to make the rest of the spaces function more efficiently
and makes the house easier to live in.
A well designed addition will enhance a house both inside and out. An addition can give a house a new
presence on the street or connect it to the backyard. It's massing can help unify existing disparate parts.
