The new owners of this unique mid-century modern house in the Philadelphia suburbs want to add an attached but separate living area for their son. They want to do this in a way that maintains the original house as much as possible. 

The solution was to create the addition at the lower level and extend the deck over the addition to give them an expanded outdoor living space at the living room level. 


The addition fits nicely into the area previously defined by the retaining wall of the carport. New walls will be clad in brick to match the carport wall. The new wood siding will be painted to harmonize with the color of the existing stained redwood siding- coordinate with but not match the original.
