This project was an extensive addition to an English Country traditional estate and the creation of an outdoor patio meticulously built into a dramatic elevation on the south end of the home. With its gabled stone and shake house countryside reminiscence, the project added essentially a four-story structure into the southeastern landscape in artful form.

The addition also comprises cement and structural steel carved into the site on the rear elevation to accommodate a 17-car garage. There is interaction between architecture and site, where outdoor patio and terrace work ties built and natural landscape together as the grade changes; intentional materiality blends new and old in seamless transition. Original views from the existing home are reintegrated in the addition through careful space planning. The addition features a 70-by-44-foot ballroom designed to scale down for intimate settings, an extended dining area, sunroom, office, sitting room, and primary bedroom on the main level. The home also features a screened, outdoor room, complete with copper-barreled roof and fireplace; hydroponics garden, wine room, courtyard, additional bedrooms and bathrooms, and incredible craftsmanship, from the quality of materials to architectural details in the ceiling and hidden bookcase.

From the Judges
The judges praised the site additions and the extensive ceiling details. They noted the pocket door cabinets that create a secret office behind the formal living room and the extensive landscaping to the rear of the house.
