This modern home addition links to the existing residence via a protected deck which becomes an outdoor living space in summer, with retracting glazed doors. The kitchen and living, and bedroom wings are separated by a dining area that steps down to a patio that is naturally shaded by an existing camellia tree. ZGA Architects designed the house with simple materials that provide a relaxed environment for family life.
