The transformation of this home becomes a testament to the harmonious coexistence of historical elements and contemporary style. The design differentiates new from old while preserving the neighborhood’s historic scale. The addition formed as memory of the existing gambrel roof is repeated and displaced from the original structure. The interior remodel conceived as a meeting of the minimalist addition and its historic counterpart, with the overlapping space becoming an expanded Bulthaup kitchen. New areas establish a direct connection to the garden and the city beyond. The compartmentalized rooms of the original structure contrast the openness of the primary suite addition. The addition of solar thermal and photovoltaic panels effectively manage the home’s energy needs.
