Shingle Style Addition

Westport, CT

Split Level style residence circa 1960, renovated and expanded in 2002.
Additions and alterations completed 2008.

Architect: Studio DiBerardino, LLC
Contractor: Celotto Properties, Inc.

Scope of Work:

New two-story wing. First floor new spaces include a guest bedroom, a bathroom, a mudroom, a pool cabana and a three-car garage. A children's playroom and a bedroom are new rooms within the second story of the addition.

Surprises/Quirks/Restraints:

Addition was not to exceed the main house in height or visual importance.

Solution:

Architectural features from the main house – varied rooflines, window projections, shingle siding and stone accents – were incorporated within the composition of the new wing at the right side of house in a complimentary way to the existing shingle style structure. The majority of the addition is contained within one low broad roof shape in order to minimize its mass. Dormers provide addition space for the second story children's playroom.

Specialties:

The craftsmanship of the new stone veneer helps to tie-in the new wing.

Off-the-shelf exterior trim and mouldings were readily available to allow for a seamless blend between the new and the existing portions of the house.

Using basic components, a coffered ceiling was created in the children's playroom adding visual interest to a large space.

Left over space below the mudroom staircase proved ideal to store the supplementary refrigerator.
