A New Suburban Home Connected to the Outdoors

We started with a non-descript, two-story suburban home. The owners originally asked for a family room addition out the back. Our existing conditions study identified a lot of unused space on the first floor. Our solution involved reconfiguring the first floor better utilize existing space and place a family room without adding on, enabling us to add a great screened porch which we’ve affectionately dubbed ‘the lungs of the home’ that connects home with rear yard, bringing in fresh air and light into the home. Floor to ceiling glass visually expands the home, connecting it to the outdoors. A rain catchment system doubles as shading for South light.
