A repeat client, recently retired, wanted to add to her family’s home to create a home office and to expand their master bedroom to incorporate a master bathroom and a walk in closet. The current house configuration has a void to the north of the previously remodeled kitchen, MTA’s first project. The strategy was to expand into the void space to minimize the changes to the other parts of the house. This strategy also allowed for a two story second living room/office space with a floor to ceiling library at the property line wall. This space will be light filled and connect with the rear yard. Above the office/living space will be the expanded bedroom with an outdoor deck to take advantage of the western sun. A new master suite will be created out of the existing bedroom and closet.
