About this project

The defining intervention on this 1910 bungalow is a large, South-facing shed dormer that continues the roofline of the gable to pull light into the center of the home past a spacious attic loft. The renovation of the rest of the home focused on a comprehensive energy retrofit of the envelope and foundation while adding a series of custom-fabricated elements that emphasize a practical utility and appreciation of craft. Fabric-formed, poured concrete surrounds the wood-burning stove that is ducted with a passive air intake and system of operable louvers to distribute heat throughout the first floor. The original, enclosed front entry porch was transformed into a fully-insulated, year-round solar porch with removable polycarbonate storm panels that can be swapped out for screens.
