Light and Natural MaterialsI added a special eyeball fixture to illuminate the wall behind the toilet. The wall and floor are both sealed travertine for easy, low maintenance cleaning. The little drywall in the bathroom, including the ceiling were primed and painted with and industrial interior oil paint with natural iron oxide pigments to inhibit the formation of mold and endure repeated washings.

Falling TreesDuring the design process, I was curious whether the imposing tree would eventually land on the pergola. The pergola was designed to sustain the weight of plant life, a two foot layer of ice, and a few individuals with ice picks -fortunately, the impact load of the tree was never tested.

Increased Window OpeningOnly a few courses of brick existed over the opening. In order to replace the lintel for the larger opening (you can see the cut-line at the arrow), an exterior support was attached to keep every brick in it's place. Not a single grout joint was cracked or disturbed in any way.

Skylights EverywhereInstalling three skylights is marginally more difficult that installing two. The space demanded three, two over the working space and one over the eating space. What was once a small and closed and dark kitchen, is now a spectacular environment to cook, eat and interact with others.

Removing the Bottom ChordPutting skylights in this kitchen was a huge challenge; the architect said it couldn't be done. Removing the bottom chord of the roof truss needed to be examined using statics analysis, something I was trained for in school. I took my preliminary calculations to Structron Engineering and we arrived at a solution: add joists!
