The renovation of this one-story carriage house began by fabricating a steel frame which was craned into place above the existing roof. This building strategy allowed for the construction of a new upper floor with minimal disturbance to the home below. The new floor was offset three feet from the neighboring building to let light in below: a 30’ skylight parallels the living room wall. Structural logic, spatial clarity and light define the design, augmented by natural materials—steel beams, plank floor, plate glass and plaster. 2004.
