A FRAME ADDITION

It is the most challenging thing to try to add onto an A Frame.

As you can see, the space between the A Frame and the addition is awkward- this is sill a study model, so still working on the challenges. Hopefully, we can capture more useable space on the second floor by extending the walls of the addition into the main space.

STUDIO WITH GARAGE COMES TO LIFE!

This s the digital rendering of the side of the studio. The garage is below and the stairs on the side lead to an airy studio complete with kitchen and fireplace.

The foot print is tight in order to save trees.

This is a forest setting, and the idea was to site it to save as many trees as possible. The project seems tall at first, but when you see it in context, it gets dwarfed by the surrounding trees.

How a "Massing Model" helps envision a New House

The first step in figuring out a new house, is to block out the rooms and their relationship to the site.

Then from there, the basic shapes can be created in 3D- the black dashed lines are the setbacks required.

The site has been surveyed and a model of the site is used in conjunction to further define the spaces.

The next step is to further define the roof planes, the windows, the decks- the model still has not been altered, so that it is clear to see how much of the slope will have to be removed. The upper part of the house sits on top of the ground, while the lower part will require excavation.

Together with the floor plans, the shape of the house begins to take place, considering the height restrictions through cross sections of the site and setbacks thru the site plan.
