latrobe residence addition

A large 1920’s brick farmhouse provides much needed space for this family with the exception of a defunct kitchen too small for a single person. So expanding the kitchen and eating area became the impetus for this project. In addition, a first floor laundry room, bathroom and mudroom were also desired with its own separate entrance. Lastly, the master bedroom, although spacious, must share a second floor bathroom with everyone else on that floor. Therefore, a master bath was also a desire as part of this project. It is much to ask on a tight budget.

How to add onto a complete structure as this was a challenge, especially since the spatial relationships from the interior were already dictated programmatically. Our insertion is on the back of the house drawing cues from the houses features (dormers, roof details, etc.) instead of the overall massing. The intention was not to overwhelm the current presence of the house, but to supplement it with additional features that would fit within the existing architecture. The project is clad in cement board clap board siding to bring balance to the vast amount of brick as well as pick up on the character of the existing dormer windows on the back of the house.
