PROGRAM: Addition to a Spanish Mission style house
CONCEPT: The Mason House is an addition to an existing Spanish Mission style house. The addition is made up of four abstracted components; massive white blade walls, a lightweight floating roof plane, and a raised brickwork podium. The addition responds to the form and style of the existing dwelling yet has a contemporary language of its own. The new addition follows the lines of the existing roof and gutter, and the width of the last column in the colonnade of the existing dwelling was repeated in the two walls of the addition. A connecting bridge links the existing dwelling and the new addition. Our detailing of the addition aims to accentuate the reading of the separate elements.
