Existing VS Proposed
What started off as a small kitchen remodel, turned into a 424 SF addition and an entire remodel of the existing 3,478 SF three story East Coast Colonial house. The inside of the building envelope was taken down to the studs to allow for a clean slate of materials, for design and constructability reasons. Both flights of internal stairs were re-built with open rails, visually opening up the vertical circulation core. The carefully selected material palette responds to the owners’ request for balancing aesthetics and functionality, and its neutral colors aim for timelessness and relevance to the historic bones of the house.
I was actively involved throughout all phases of this project, from SD to CA, and produced all drawings (Design Review set, Permit set, Bid set, CD set, ASIs, RFIs etc), renderings, assisted in material selection, facilitated consultant coordination and client meetings, and attended weekly site meetings for Construction Administration.
N° 1475 was selected for the AIA Silicon Valley Home Tours 2018. Per AIA records, it was the most attended house of the tour. All content belongs to Ana Williamson Architect.
