The Brown addition was simply an expansion of the master bedroom to the existing mid-century modern home that could accommodate a larger bathroom and closet as well as a roof-top deck for star gazing.
While speaking the same language and making a place of it's own, the addition employed similar, but more modern construction methods and materials. The addition sits discreetly at the back of the home, but has visual connections with the surrounding homes, so it was a consideration to address issues of privacy. The low profile of the existing roof was subtly reflected while a gradually eroding wood screen to the south was utilized to provide that privacy to both the homeowners as well as their neighbors. This also screened a small outdoor storage area under the stairs as well as provide filtered light from the south into the large, open shower.
