The owners of a one-story concrete block home typical of many homes built in Florida during the 1950's and 1960's, wanted two additional bedrooms and a bathroom while keeping largely within their existing building footprint. To accommodate the owner's program, the majority of the new square footage was located as a new second floor with only a small new space being added to the existing first floor. However, this new space introduced spatial volume formerly lacking in the home while simultaneously accommodating a new stairway and providing a welcoming entry area.
A combination of flat and gabled roofs were used to respect the existing modern aesthetic while adding some varied massing and form to the home. Exterior cladding extends partially down into the original first floor to seamlessly blend the new addition with the existing portions of the home.
