It is difficult to believe that this is an alterations and additions project. Unless they compare the spaces and the position in plan , the owners themselves cannot identify the old building. The additions were only about 40% of the total area , but the exterior face lift combined with the refreshed finishes and the open spaces that form a transparent link between the old and the new areas have created a whole new building. The owner’s main request was that they don’t want a boring shape or looks of their house.The combination of linear and curved shapes is used to create an unique shape that matches their expectations.
