Site size: 6,250 square feet
Project size: 1,300 square feet
Program: The task was to update the interior of an early twentieth-century red brick bungalow and expand the footprint to include a living room, and master bedroom and bathroom.
Location: The periphery of downtown Phoenix
Solution: The architects added 500 square feet to the rear of the original building. The new volume extends into a lush desert landscape to create a serene, private courtyard.
Construction and materials: The historic home is built of red brick; interior walls are plaster with lathe beneath exposed. In the kitchen, the original oak floors and custom concrete tiles remain. The extension makes use of slab on grade concrete floors, conventional framing, dual pane glass, and a cold rolled metal rainscreen with a 1" vented air gap to reduce solar heat gain.
