DESCRIPTION: This project was for a filmmaker and one of the creaters of Adult Swim and the founder of Homestar Runner. The young couple has a beautiful 4-year old girl named Esther Bee. The family requested an addition to their exisiting, small surburban house on a 50 x 200 lot. Lightroom's approach was to create an addition with a solid layer containing the stair and library that acts as juncture between new and old. On the lower level there is the kitchen, dining, living. On the upper level is the master suite and Esther Bee's room placed in the tree tops. The project is about de-materialization as it moves from the solid of the exisiting house, and transforms into void as it mediates between the living space and the rear garden.
