We wanted to respect this beautiful contemporary house built in 1959 but add features required in today’s homes. 
The house did not have a backyard. By turning the house around, we created a large back yard. The front of the house that had a very large asphalted surface became the backyard and the back of the house became the front with the new entry addition matching the design of existing building.

We extended the kitchen by adding a bay-like eating area facing into the new backyard.
