1960's Ranch Renovation

This existing 1960's ranch was near its end of life when rescued by the owner. It’s interior was extensively gutted and renovated, thereby saving the embodied energy contained within the existing structure.

Specific issues that were addressed included completely opening up an office to the main family room space by incorporating sliding 3-Form panels that stow away within architecturally detailed thickened wall projections, reconfiguring the existing bedrooms and bathrooms, reconfiguring the kitchen, and completely building out the basement for a bedroom suite and very livable den space.
