Monroe Street House modern exterior

Monroe Street House

A modest remodel and addition for a couple, a writer and his wife, a professor, this project was phased in two parts to allow for the birth of the couple’s first child. Phase 1 is a standing seam-clad addition to the existing house that juts
out into the rear yard, taking cues from certain trees and landscape features. The remainder of the addition is wrapped in stained cedar siding that flows seamlessly onto the attached deck and surrounds the precast concrete
dipping pool. Paint colors create a lively palette that, even from the street, provides clues of what the backyard holds. Phase two takes continues this bold color palette into the existing house. The kitchen was completely made over, with concrete countertops and floor to ceiling windows looking out to the addition. The existing bedrooms and bathroom were reconfigured to make the spaces more useful.

What company makes the metal soffit and fascia? - I would like to use this white metal style for the underside of a flat car port and would really appreciate knowing which company or manufacturer to contact to supply the metal. Thanks!

Pool specs - Would you be willing to sell the plans for the custom culvert? I have been trying to explain this exact idea to people forever and now I have it in living color. And that it can be done. Thank you! It is sublime. We live in Newport, RI, otherwise I'd be on your doorstep. The historic district will have their hands full with this design. TBS

Corner Detail - Do you mind sharing (literally or conceptually) how you detailed the corners of the siding. I notice some type of metal trim.

LOVE the pool-seems perfect for our very small Toronto backyard. Where are you located? Can I acquire something similar in Canada?

Oh, that's interesting :) I was wrong in thinking it was a spa then. I love the idea of a mini pool like this!

Dear Clayton&Little Architects-wonderful job. I am in Jerusalem Israel and I was planning on a similar pool but was going to cast it myself with poured concerete. Your idea is so much easier (if I can get the culvert made here). How did you install lighting?

Thank you in advance- S.C. Lawrence

I like the shape of this one for your corner of the yard. Entry from the alley woud be easier and the extra walls would give you some variation for storage and visual appeal. Maybe extent the roof line for some more outdoor roofline coverage.
