Chang - Naftulin Residence

This house is located on a bustling street corner in Lyon Village. The addition takes its inspiration from the corner lot orientation and distinctive original vintage stone clad house, a well known community landmark.

The owners, one a lawyer, the other a college professor, both trained chefs, asked for a substantial addition and remodel to their 1930's side-hall Colonial. The wish list included informal living space for cooking, family and entertaining, extra bedrooms and upgrades to existing formal living areas. The client requested a traditional exterior architecture, consistent to the original house, and a "Transitional" or contemporary interior.

The new design removes interior walls to transform the existing formal living spaces. A poorly conceived 1-story rear addition was demolished and replaced with a new rear family room, kitchen and screen porch addition. The exterior is layered in two distinct volumes. The taller sided gable addition is setback to allow the lower stone wing to pass by and engage it as a plinth. The 1-story wing is pushed to the legal corner setback line. It visually extends the original house around the corner and serves as a segue element, splicing new to old.
