Deerfield Addition

This 1960's suburban home had previously had two renovations done by NKAI. The final piece of the work was to create a master bedroom suite and an enlarged family room and study below.

The addition creates a defined courtyard in the backyard. The design of the addition features two prominent brick piers connected at the top with a half round arch, and a brick chimney. Glass infills the areas between the brick elements. The new landscaping and hardscape includes various seating areas looking out into the yard, and a water feature for ambient noise.

The family room is a step down, which gives a higher ceiling relative to the existing areas of the house. A pair of glass doors provides acoustic privacy in the study. Decorative illuminated niches provide a physical break between the new family room and the existing home. At the master bedroom, the half round transom window dramatically intersects the hip roof.
