Modest Modern

Modest Modern: Growing in time

The clients for this project sought a master plan solution that would add a family room to their existing one-story, two bedroom, mid-century modern home. With a growing family the optimal plan involved shifting the uses of existing spaces to provide a family room where a former dining room had been. To do this the existing dining room was relocated to an area that had been occupied by a small bedroom. By shifting use of space the expansion of the home could then occur at the private, bedroom wing side where it made functional sense.

Providing a new bedroom at the end of the existing hallway, this addition represents a modular expansion to the home’s post and beam construction. Additionally, the master plan design provides a plan for the future construction of an entry foyer.
