"The most challenging part of the design was fusing the old part of the house with the new addition," says principal architect Alex Terry. The character and architectural integrity of the single-level 1950s ranch house was thoughtfully reconsidered during the addition and remodel. The home’s front porch, typical of the period, was refreshed with Ipe decking and railing.

Carstensen updated the deck, replacing the vertical posts with screen to create a more open feeling.
The screened porch is just a few steps from the back door and deck, making for easy circulation between the different areas.
Carstensen landscaped the backyard and added a simple firepit circle with chairs. This seating area merges easily with the new screened porch.

Viewed from the street looking west, the first third of the lot was landscaped to be an extension of the adjacent land and water conservation project and to provide an undisturbed animal habitat.
"The border between inside and outside fades because of the perpetuation of the washed concrete flooring, reminiscent of cannon bases. Just like the shutters of the old barn, the sliding facades of the expansion offer the opportunity to seal off the guest complex entirely," explains Vanhoutte.
On the ground floor, the house comprises a series of brick volumes.
By reducing the facade, which faces the strong western sun, the architects could minimize the amount of sunlight entering the building.
"This long rectangular view was carefully detailed to widen the perspective of the garden, creating an optical illusion of making the garden itself feel wider then it actually is," says Ong.
The original extension blocked airflow and sunlight into the house, which resulted in dark, cramped living spaces. By adding three massive sliding doors to open up the garden-facing wall of the house, Ong has made the interiors look and feel brighter and more spacious.
"We immediately knew the best method to bring value through design would be to remove the lean-to," says Ong. His solution was to pull open the rear façade and alter the relationship between the existing spaces with the garden outdoors.
To make the home look and feel larger, the MODO team ironically made the new house smaller in size.
Sliding glass doors open the bedrooms up to their own private patios; the opaque walls conceal the bathrooms.
