This project demonstrates a strongly contextual yet contemporary addition to a 1920's brick residence on an architectural showcase street in North Asheville. Careful attention to composition and detailing resulted in an addition that is one genetically related to it's ancestor, but clearly conceived in the 21st century. The addition connects and opens up the house to the expansive yard below. Green building features include radiant floor heat and domestic hot water systems fed by new solar panels, and brick reclaimed from the original structure. Non-toxic green finishes include marmoleum and low voc paints.
