The program called for the removal of the entire house behind the façade. The new house allowed the clients to get approval from the neighborhood review board by building on the existing footprint and preserving the existing façade, with the exception of a new front door. The major new element is a large living/dining/kitchen space. An atrium connects to the photo studio and gallery below; above are the new guest rooms, a master bedroom suite, and a textile studio. The project refers to southern architecture, specifically to Roswell's Bullock Hall, but here the American Foursquare is opened with a cross axis and large hall where the stair is placed.
