Garage Addition

Westport, CT


Featured in Home Owner Magazine, the owner's need for both a garage and a guest apartment shaped this addition, which efficiently combined both elements into one structure. Built at the eastern end of a rambling one story Connecticut home, this two story addition serves as a gatehouse marking the approach and entry to the main house beyond. Individual components of the new addition - the stairs, the sleeping alcove, and the new window nook - are all expressed on the exterior to create a rick "cottage like" quality, while creating a dramatic and open interior space.
