Project Statement

Our main objective was to build the new structure for the owners with the goal of allowing the parents (owners) to have their daughter & new son-in-law living on the property, while still maintaining privacy for them both. Long-term, multi-generational living was the idea & goal for this project. The owners were concerned and adamant that we would not sacrifice the architectural elements of the original house and that we improve & achieve better functionality, efficiency & comfort for everyday living and convenience for both parties. The family, being of Italian descent, had visions of entertaining for family & friends: hosting large family gatherings and social events, as well as having room for out-of-town guests.

Another client concern was aging in place. In the downstairs of the new addition, we added a guest suite with wider doorways (36”) and a bathroom, featuring a curb-less shower downstairs with handheld washing devices, for potential wheelchair and/or limited mobility needs. Entry door thresholds were kept below ¾”, and the house had full access around 90% of the areas including backyard pool.

All of this was planned and accomplished while the owners were still living “on site.”  There was a temporary plywood walkway built for the owner to exit and go to doctors’ visits/ daily errands. Extensive clean up around the site was imperative everyday for safety & comfort to the owners. Dust and noise control were concerns & managed throughout the project.
