Residential Architecture

Addition to a Boston
Arts and Crafts house

This 2-story addition was designed for a charming but undersized home in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston. A modest budget called for a new television room, breakfast room, two bedrooms and a bath. The entire new program plus two exterior balconies were accommodated within a footprint of 732 square feet. 

Above: The addition (partly obscured by the tree in above left photo) extends fully across the rear (above right) of the original house. By continuing the existing architectural vocabulary, the house's overall scale is increased, strengthening its presence among its larger neighbors (Before photo, below).
