St. Louis, MO
The site slopes towards the south on the back of the house, allowing for a volumetric, bright and breezy sunroom addition that opens wide to the garden. The room also serves as a studio classroom for the Owner’s art classes. The second floor houses both the Master Suite which opens onto a trellised roof deck with spa above the sunroom and a secondary bedroom and balcony which overlooks the garden below.
Outside, new paths, patios and landscape embrace it all, comfortably minimizing the barrier from inside to outside.What was once a one story, white brick and clapboard cottage in the suburb of Town & Country, Missouri has been completely remodeled from top to bottom. The existing roof was raised to convert what was once a little used attic storage area into usable space. Evidence of the addition is hardly noticeable from the street, maintaining its cozy cottage appearance.
