Nestled in a neighborhood of two-bedroom, mid-century ramblers in the Village of St. Anthony this house was expanded to serve the needs of a blended family. The owners also wanted a modern, light-filled home. The design solution maintains the first-floor framing adds a second floor and wraps the exterior in charcoal-stained and natural cedar. The interior walls were removed to create an open plan with white walls and rich wood accents. The living room and metal staircase have floor-to-ceiling glass that allows these open areas to be bathed with natural light. The house is transformed into a four-bedroom home complete with a family room and office. The landscaping features architectural planters, a master-suite terrace, and a seamless deck that is sheltered by a cantilevered roof.
