An exterior renovation of a mid-century modern style house.
The client was tired of the ‘firehouse’ look of his modern style home, and wanted to infuse some more traditional curb-appeal to his house.
We opted for interrupting the continuous running overhang over the front of the house and the detached Garage, taking advantage of the symmetry of the façade to convert it into a more traditional entry porch, with columns and moldings. A uniform stone wainscot was added to the front, together with a mansard type roof that hangs lower than the second floor windows, to reduce the scale of the volume of the two-story house.
