SEATING, SPACE, AND STORAGE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
The homeowners of this Fairfax home were in dire need of extra living space—exactly what a conventional home addition is designed to resolve. With the client’s minimalistic design preferences and a variety of planned uses for the new space, the design team got to work on a plan that would fit their functional needs and stylistic preferences.
The homeowners desired a lot of windows to let in plenty of natural light, durable flooring, and lots of seating. In planning the new livable space, it was also important to close off the great room for privacy or open it up without impacting the wall space.
As a busy family, they wanted to add a mudroom into the new space to conveniently organize any discarded items after being worn or used outside, and to help reduce unwanted dirt and clutter from entering the rest of the home.
