Traditional Residential Projects
In the greater Boston area, most of our building projects are additions to or renovations of traditional homes. Our goal with these properties is to create a contextual addition that fits into the neighborhood and with the original building. We are frequently asked to design a garage addition with living space above or a second story, both of which drastically change the look of the house from the street. We use a variety of rooflines to minimize the bulk of the addition and to create visual interest. These projects are an interesting challenge.
In designing affordable housing projects it has been especially important for the houses to blend into their surroundings and not draw any criticism from neighbors aesthetically. We’ve taken cues from adjacent structures to create traditional yet energy efficient homes.
