nj addition

this project was a “modern box” addition to a tudor style single family house in teaneck, new jersey. the addition attempted to be it’s own object, rather than blend with the existing house. the floor to ceiling sliding doors maxmized the views, and natural light, while the radiant heat kept the “sitting room” warm during the winter. a palette of anodized aluminum, exposed concrete, and dark grey stucco sharply juxtaposed the existing house. a outdoor deck complemented the addition.
