This small one-room addition – less than 600 sq. ft. – is the most recent project Dynerman Architects has designed for this family. Twenty-five years ago our firm was hired to design a whole house renovation/addition. This time around, the program brief was much simpler: “Design a porch.”
The home owners entertain a great deal; they host family and friends for lunches, dinners, pot-lucks on an almost weekly basis. They wanted to hold these gatherings in a way that takes advantage of their yard and garden. Our response was to design a room that is close to open-air. The room is glazed on three sides and the the doors to the deck slide into a pocket making the room fully indoor/outdoor when the weather allows.
