Residential Addition | Altadena, CA
Bathroom & dining room addition to an existing single family residence located in Altadena, CA. The addition is planned as a modern, minimalistic and sculptural extension of the existing traditional house. An energy audit of the home resulted in both active and passive elements being incorporated into the new design. An on-demand tankless hot water heater and new HVAC equipment are the updated active systems, which will save the client cost and resources. The passive systems provided are highly efficient insulation and sun shade louvers placed around the more exposed portions of the house. These clean contemporary looking louvers are to be installed horizontally and vertically to shade the facade and new large glazed openings to support an indoor outdoor living experience.
