Located in the suburbs of Philadelphia, this renovation of a family home merges traditional forms with modern updates. The new volume echoes the existing home with its simple gabled roofline. On the first floor an updated living room and enclosed porch provide ample space for family gathering. In contrast, the second floor master suite is a retreat, complete with cathedral ceilings and fireplace-framed reading nook.

Deep-framed openings provide a modern accent to the traditional board and batten siding on the extension.
