Modern Colonial Addition

Byrnes Residence

  Project Overview:

Type: Modern Colonial Addition; Scope of Work: 800 sq. ft. family room and master bath addition, 400 sq. ft. deck/patio addition; Style: Garrison Colonial; Location: Arlington, Massachusetts; Project Status: Working Drawings

  Project Description:

Our client wanted to expand the living space in this garrison colonial by creating a new family room and master bath extension at the second floor. The ceiling height in this originally traditional cape was too modest so we suggested a step down into the family room creating a grander entry. The master bath extended overhead creating the need for dormers. The scaled dormers provide light and space not only to the bathroom but extend into the family room exposed ceiling beyond. As a result of the smaller scale, the addition does not overpower the house. The transom windows provide added detail to the space and alignment to the existing windows.
