An Archrysalis Online project.
With the arrival of a new baby, a modest 3 bedroom home quickly became too small for a young family. The addition of a master bedroom suite and laundry room, provided the necessary relief. The new addition transforms a 1980’s traditional neighborhood ranch into a open sided courtyard house. The laundry room and hall create a necessary buffer between the living room and the master suite. Positioning the new bedroom at far end of the home also affords views to the rear garden. The residual courtyard becomes both a tranquil retreat and a space for outdoor cooking, dining, and entertainment. The raised deck wraps around the rear facade, tying the patio together.
