H2D is currently working with a great client on a remodel and addition to her new home. This Madison Park house is in great need of some updating and care. The existing foundation is made of brick masonry and is starting to fail. The project will entail lifting the house to replace the existing masonry foundation with a new concrete foundation. The house will be set down allowing for additional head height to create a full, useable basement which will be turned into a rental unit. The design goals are to bring back the historic craftsman character of the house through renovating both the exterior and interior. Green strategies include installing a green roof above the new addition at the rear of the house, creating an energy efficient envelope, installing rain screen siding assembly, and using low-toxic, sustainable materials throughout the interior.
