Floisand Studio Architecture as Architects

What to do when you’ve got a growing family and a tiny house on a postage stamp lot? Expand up. But, building up isn’t without challenges, especially when the addition needs to bear on a basement that had been fully remodeled a mere few years earlier. But you love the neighborhood, you don’t want to move, so you get creative. And that is what this family of four did. 

Taking advantage of the property’s vertical space, we redesigned the main floor and added a second story addition as well as an attached garage with family room above. The main floor spaces are open and free of walls with the powder room/pantry/closet consolidated into a single functional block. An undulating wood screen divides the main stair from the dining room while allowing light to filter in from a window/skylight that wraps up and over the stairwell.  The new second floor addition added three new bedrooms, two new baths and a laundry room  creating more space for the family.
