This 1975 split level home in a wooded area of Reston, VA is home to a family of six. They needed more space and fast. Challenges: Split level home was not an easy task to take on due to its strategic lot location and expanded space on either sides or back. The design team offered a master suite expansion over the existing first floor (living room, dining room and kitchen) as their best option of expansion. This act offered a private and secluded space for parents, while giving the children three middle level bedrooms and a bath of their own. While maintaining everything intact in main level, popping up the entire roof of the first floor and adding this 25’x35’ addition over it was not a simple task. Design solutions: The right side carpet was demolished and taken over by a new 24’x 33’ double door garage, a storage space leading to a new double wide concrete driveway. An all new front porch with half stoned columns and pillars have helped keep with the cottage style look of the neighborhood. Removing the old beat up cedar siding and run down roof shingles with more updated (an insulated) vinyl siding and Architectural roof shingles uplifted the entirely of this home Leading by a wooden staircase from second level into new third level addition, just get us to doorstep of what this homeowner calls my heavenly space. Large Master bedroom suite with seating space, with vaulted ceiling and skylight, lots of sun light and wide plank maple, Bordeaux finish wood floor as breath taking. Implementing a separate new heating and cooling system was essential for this new space and much challenging. His and hers closets were amenities they did not experience for a long time. We have used bright paint colors to compliment wood floors and bedroom set. Creating a step effect glass block as a privacy wall for the commode area was a smart choice. A new 11’x12’ Master bathroom suite with a large shower stall, built in bench and niches covered with flagstone tiles, tea for two soaking whirlpool, a long double vanity space covered with granite top and fancy fixtures kept this bathroom a sacred place for her. Now everyone gets to have their own space.
